CA Clinics Welcomes Rolling Commission Into ADF and Veteran Suicide and Continues Vet Support Through DVA-Backed Medicinal Cannabis Program
CA Clinics, a division of Southern Cannabis Holdings (SCH), wholeheartedly welcomes Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s announcement of a permanent rolling commission into suicide among Australia’s defence force personnel and veterans.
CA Clinics is committed to supporting the mental health of our veterans and continues its program to facilitate access for vet patients to DVA-funded medicinal cannabis.
So far, over 150 DVA patients have been screened by our clinic to see if medicinal cannabis is a treatment option for them. Some of our veteran patients are also participating in a PTSD Study being conducted by Applied Cannabis Research, outside the DVA framework, to explore the effects of cannabinoid treatment for this condition. We look forward to sharing our results.
