Founded in 1919, Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity specialising in the care of Veterans' mental health. We have supported almost 100,000 ex-Service men and women of every campaign that British forces have been involved in since the First World War.
We have a current caseload of more than 5,000 Veterans, including 589 who served in Iraq and 228 who served in Afghanistan. Our youngest Veteran is just 18 years old.
