“Our residential PTSD Intensive Treatment Programme is proven to not only transform lives but save them too. Yet we receive no government funding in England, Wales and Northern Ireland for the service. Now, 80% dependent on public donations, we’re at risk of having to cut this vital programme.
“For the first time ever, the rate of PTSD is higher among veterans than serving personnel and the public. It’s alarmingly high among those veterans who served in combat – and it’s these veterans who are the most unwell and in urgent need of treatment. We call on the government to commit to funding our proven and vital specialist residential treatment programme.”
