About us

Vision Mission Values

Combat Stress is the UK's leading Veterans' mental health charity. 

Mental ill-health affects ex-Service men and women of all ages. Right now, we're supporting over 5,900 Veterans aged from 18 to 97. We're a vital lifeline for these men and women, and their families.

Our treatment and support services are always free of charge, and are proven to work.

Our Vision is that Veterans will be able to live free from the harmful effects of psychological wounds. 

Our Mission is to provide timely, effective clinical treatment and welfare support to Veterans who suffer from psychological wounds. 

Our Values are to: 

  • Always put Veterans at the centre of our work
  • Aspire to excellence in everything we do
  • Foster a culture of respect and integrity


Combat Stress currently spends over £15 million per annum delivering its unique range of specialist treatment and welfare support. Everything we do is free to the Veteran. Please show your support and DONATE NOW to help us continue to help them.
