The UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health.
For almost a century, we’ve helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, we provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at our treatment centres.
We’re on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So when a veteran is having a tough time, we’re there to help tackle the past and to help them take on the future.
Here are some symptoms you may recognise if you’ve had traumatic experiences:
Work-related or relationship problems
Feeling numb and empty
Self harm and self-destructive tendencies
Avoidance of people and places
Panic attacks/anxiety/depression/mood swings
Frequent periods of withdrawal into oneself
Anger or aggressive behaviour
Feeling distrustful and suspicious/blaming others
Misuse of alcohol/drugs/gambling and/or food
Seeking out high-risk/dangerous pursuits.
