How might I go about finding a psychiatric service dog?

My doctor has recommended that I look around for organizations that provide service dogs for people suffering from non-combat-related PTSD. Unfortunately, all of the results I've turned up so far have only been for veterans, and none of the organizations I've found actually connect individuals with trained dogs.
I'm looking for two things: (1) information on which organizations help PTSD sufferers connect with service dogs, particularly non-veterans in NYC, and (2) general info on how a psychiatric service dog may have helped you or someone you know, including any relevant experiences you have personally had with such animals.
Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
