COMBAT STRESS




There is often a long delay between Veterans leaving the military and seeking help. In 1994 the average delay seeking help for Service-related mental health conditions was 24 years. By 2014 this had reduced to 12 years.

Through their work, and that of the military chain of command and other mental health charities, Combat Stress are breaking down the stigma around mental illness, leading to more Veterans feeling able to come forward. 

For 96 years they have been there for the military community and will be for decades to come. If you or a member of your family served in the UK Armed Forces and need to talk about mental health, please call the 24-hour Helpline on 0800 138 1619.
