Combat Stress (National)

For almost a century, we’ve helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, we provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict. On the phone and online. In the community and at our treatment centres.

We’re on a mission to raise awareness that invisible injuries can be just as hard to cope with as physical ones. So when a veteran is having a tough time, we’re there to help tackle the past and to help them take on the future.

If you're currently serving, or have served in the UK Armed Forces, you can call our 24-hour Helpline to talk about mental health. If you are a family member or carer worried about a loved one or need to talk to someone yourself, you can use it too.

Our Helpline is open all day, every day offering support and advice. This is a free and confidential service.

We are here for you if you are having a tough time, have trouble sleeping, have flashbacks, feel depressed, get anxious sometimes or just feel that something is not quite right.
