Combat Stress is the UK’s leading mental health charity for Veterans. Founded in 1919, our aim is to ensure that Veterans receive the right mental health care, in the right place, at the right time.
Founded over 100 years ago, we have since supported more than 100,000 ex-Service men and women. Our work is as vital today as it was after the First World War. Our aim is to ensure that Veterans receive the right mental health care, in the right place, at the right time.
We treat conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. Our services are free of charge to Veterans. To help Veterans rebuild their lives, we provide a range of services:
• A 24-hour Helpline (tel: 0800 138 1619) for Serving personnel and Veterans, and their families.
• Community and Outreach – delivered by a UK-wide network of regional teams providing practical and clinical support.
• Short-stay clinical treatment – often with other Veterans – at one of our specialist treatment centres in Ayrshire, Shropshire and Surrey.
