Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. I served 24 years in the Army and have known those around me go through the agony of PTSD. I’m sure that there are many more that have been suffering in silence. It’s a subject that’s very close to home and one that I’m passionate about raising funds for.
For almost a century, Combat Stress have helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, they provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at treatment centres.
I’m on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be as hard to cope with as physical ones. So when a veteran is having a tough time, there is someone there to help tackle the past and to help them take on the future.
