Combat Stress is the UK's leading Veterans' mental health charity. We provide specialist clinical treatment and welfare support to all Veterans suffering from psychological injuries.

The charity is currently helping over 5,900 ex-Service men and women rebuild their lives. This includes 971 Afghanistan Veterans. 

We're always happy to help the media in any way that we can. Please contact the Press Office for:

  • Our comments on relevant news stories. Please note that we are a non-political charity and do not comment on issues regarding serving personnel.

  • Case studies of Veterans receiving help from Combat Stress.

  • Interviews with spokespeople.

  • National and regional statistics on Veterans.

  • Copies of studies and reports, where possible, on Veterans' mental health conditions.

The Press Office receives a lot of enquiries from university students. Due to the volume of requests we are no longer able to assist with student requests.  

The Combat Stress Press Office is open from 9 am to 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. Please contact the Press Officer on 01372 587165 or email

For out-of-hours enquiries, please call 0800 098 8821.

If you are a Veteran, a serving member of the Armed Forces, reservist or a family member and require clinical help, please call our 24-hr Helpline on 0800 138 1619. The Press Office is not trained to deal with calls of a clinical nature.
