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, including depression, anxiety, a phobia or PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
We offer a range of treatment services in the community, at our specialist centres, on the phone and online, and we develop a personalised programme for each veteran's individual needs. Combat Stress provides the UK's only residential treatment for veterans with trauma-related mental health problems. Highly trained staff have specialist knowledge of veteran trauma. Our unique combination of psychological and psychiatric treatment, and occupational therapy benefits the most unwell veterans.
Our treatment is evidence based: our research study work with the King's Centre for Military Health Research evaluates and demonstrates the effectiveness of our services. Nationwide, we have a unique peer support service, which is led by veterans for veterans.
