About Combat Stress
Why Combat Stress exists
Combat Stress is the UK's leading military charity specialising in the care of Veterans' mental health.
We look after men and women who are suffering from a psychological condition related to their Service career. This might be depression, anxiety, a phobia or PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Our services are free of charge to the Veteran.
Since 2005 the number of ex-Service men and women seeking our help has risen by 72%. We have a current caseload of more than 4,400 individuals – including 102 Afghanistan and 400 Iraq Veterans.
In March 2010 our Patron HRH The Prince of Wales launched The Enemy Within Appeal on behalf of Combat Stress.
This £30 million, three-year fundraising campaign is designed to help us treat the escalating number of psychologically injured Veterans who are turning to us for help, by:
- Establishing 14 Community Outreach teams nationwide
- Enhancing clinical treatment at our three short-stay treatment centres
