Rubicon,
Here is a link to the VAC policy:

http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/policy/document/1104

The Family members section of this policy provides further guidance on coverage for your family. I am unsure of the age limit and if you child has to be living at home. Hopefully, VAC will get back to you soon on your questions.

If you are seeing a psychologist then talk to him/her about mental health treatment for your family members as some of these psychologists have a good understanding of whats covered.

I haven't found any reference material on the VAC website that covers help for family members affected by a member veteran diagnosed with PTSD. Does the child still have to be living at home and classed as a dependent and is there an age limit? I've sent a secure e-mail to VAC on My VAC Account to get an answer as well. Thanks.
