Media Centre

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 5,600 ex-Service men and women rebuild their lives. This includes 662 Afghanistan Veterans. (For more on our latest figures, please see the press release in our News section.)

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 offer interviews with Veterans and staff.  

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 nicola.hudson@combatstress.org.uk

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

We also have a regularly updated factsheet, which we hope you will find useful. Download it here.
