Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. More than 2,000 veterans reach out to Combat Stress each year. For 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). Combat Stress provide life-changing treatment to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at their specialist centres. Combat Stress know that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones, their services help veterans cope with the present, tackle the past and take on the future. The Foundation awarded Combat Stress £9,000 towards their community mental health services for veterans in Bristol.
