We’re honoured to be the chosen charity of the day for the Army Navy match in 2019, our centenary year. With more than 80,000 people expected to attend, it will be a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of veterans’ mental health and the difference our work makes.
We provide a range of services to veterans on the phone, online, in the community and at our treatment centres. When a veteran turns to us for help, we work with them to develop a programme of treatment and support to best suit their needs.
We know that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So we’re on a mission to help former servicemen and women tackle the past and take on the future.
Every penny raised at the Army Navy game will help us continue to provide life-changing treatment to veterans with mental health problems.
"Thanks to Combat Stress I’ve got my life back."
Army veteran Andy received treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 2017. Here’s what he has to say about how we helped him:
“Before I contacted Combat Stress I was struggling with anxiety, depression, anger and guilt. It was frightening not knowing what was happening to me. Combat Stress helped me to understand that I had PTSD and gave me the tools to manage my symptoms.”
Veterans and their families can call the Combat Stress 24-hour helpline on 0800 138 1619 for free, confidential mental health advice or visit combatstress.org.uk.
