About us: Combat Stress at 95

On Monday 12 May 2014 Combat Stress marked a milestone anniversary: 95 years helping UK Veterans with psychological injuries rebuild their lives.

Each year, a small but significant number of Veterans leave the Armed Forces suffering from mental ill-health. It can cause depression, anxiety and, in some cases, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Founded after the First World War, our work is as vital today as it was in 1919. We have a caseload of over 5,400 Veterans, including 662 who have served in Afghanistan. (For more on our latest figures, please see our News section above.)

Combat Stress currently spends nearly £14 million per annum delivering its unique range of specialist treatment and welfare support. Everything we do is free to the Veteran. Please show you care and DONATE NOW to help us continue to help them.

If you need our help, do call our free 24-hour Helpline for Veterans, Service personnel, and their families: 0800 138 1619.
