We are very fortunate at the Tommy Atkins Centre to be hosting the Veterans Mental Health Charity, Combat Stress. Although the group community workshop is provided through the normal Combat Stress system, Combat Stress also provide a Peer Mentoring Service facilitated by a Combat Stress advisor.
In addition, the staff are often working within the building during our operating hours and are happy to speak to anyone who is thinking of approaching Combat Stress.
But let’s hear from Combat Stress themselves.
About Combat Stress
We are Combat Stress. The UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health.
For almost a century, we’ve helped former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Today, we provide our life-changing treatment to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at our specialist centres.
When a veteran asks for our help, we develop a programme of treatment and support to meet their individual needs. From an hour a week at a peer support group meeting close to home to our six-week residential PTSD treatment programme at one of our specialist centres, together we work out the right support.
We know that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. Our services help veterans cope with the present, tackle the past and take on the future. Some may find using just one of our services will transform their lives, others may need more to start living again. But our expert team will be there to help every step of the way.
