Combat Stress: Support for the Military Community

There is often a large delay between Veterans leaving the military and seeking our help. In 1994 the average delay seeking help for Service-related mental health conditions was 24 years. By 2014 this had reduced to 12 years.

Through our work, and that of the military chain of command and other mental health charities, we are breaking down the stigma around mental illness, leading to more Veterans feeling able to come forward. 

For 96 years we’ve been here for the military community and we will be for decades to come. If you or a member of your family served in the UK Armed Forces and need to talk about mental health, please call our 24-hour Helpline on 0800 138 1619.
