We look after Veterans who come to us with a wide range of mental health issues. We are not just concerned with the care of those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), although this is a predominant condition within our patient group.

People react to traumatic experiences in different ways.  
Here are some symptoms you may recognise:

  • Work-related or relationship problems
  • Feeling numb and empty
  • Feeling suicidal
  • Self harm and self-destructive tendencies
  • Being easily moved to tears
  • Avoidance of people and places
  • Panic attacks/anxiety/depression/mood swings
  • Feeling isolated
  • Frequent periods of withdrawal into oneself
  • Nightmares/flashbacks/insomnia
  • Anger or aggressive behaviour
  • Feeling distrustful and suspicious/blaming others
  • Misuse of alcohol/drugs/gambling and/or food
  • Seeking out high-risk/dangerous pursuits

Families play a vital role in supporting their loved one's treatment and recovery from mental ill-health - as well as facing their own unique challenges
