  • "By the time I found out about PTSD Resolution, I was desperate for help. They put me in touch with a therapist who recognised that my PTSD was caused by years of abuse and, more importantly, that it was not my fault. I would definitely recommend this service to others."

    — SY, Daughter of a Veteran

  • "The therapy sessions with my partner have also made a huge difference. We used to clash all the time but we have both learned how to communicate with each other. Don't get me wrong, it isn't perfect but we now have the tools and the understanding to communicate effectively."

    — TW, Service in Afghanistan

  • "As the sessions progressed, my therapist helped me to focus on the existing skills that I already had. By concentrating on these, alongside her help and advice, I've been able to get my life back on track and I'm in a much better place, overall. I've already recommended PTSD Resolution to others."

Situation

There are many tens of thousands Veterans suffering from military trauma. It causes flashbacks, nightmares, anger and depression - often leading to violence, alcohol and substance abuse, job loss, family breakdown and even suicide. The symptoms of PTSD wreck lives, damage families and cost country many millions of pounds in sickness and employment costs.

Solution

PTSD Resolution helps ex-service men and women who have mental health problems following service in the UK armed forces. We work with the people other services do not reach or have not been able to help. We work in prisons, for example, and we are generally able to work with traumatised people who have alcohol and drug problems provided they are able to engage in therapy. It is a unique service, operated largely by volunteers, with funding focused on paying therapists
