This Year's Charity

Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health.

For almost a century, they've helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Today, they provide life-changing treatment to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at specialist centres.

Combat Stress will develop a programme of treatment and support to meet a veteran's individual needs. From an hour a week at a peer support group meeting close to home to their six-week residential PTSD treatment programme at one of their specialist centres - they will work with the individual to work out the right support.

The services that Combat Stress provide, help veterans cope with the present, tackle the past and take on the future. Some may find using just one of their services will transform their lives, others may need more to start living again. But an expert team at Combat Stress is there to help every step of the way.
