PTSD Resolution, a UK charity providing free and effective therapy for the mental welfare of Forces’ Veterans, Reservists and their families, has launched a new video to raise awareness of the mental health issues faced by veterans and the support available to them.

The film’s release was on 6 June, the 80th anniversary of D-Day, paying tribute to the sacrifices made by the armed forces.

The charity is highlighting the often-overlooked struggles of veterans, reservists and their families as they cope with the psychological impact of their service. PTSD Resolution’s film aims to shed light on these issues and offer hope to those in need by showcasing the free, tailored therapy provided by the charity’s nationwide network of 200 therapists.

Colonel Tony Gauvain (Retired), chairman of PTSD Resolution, emphasised the importance of the film’s message: “On this significant anniversary, we remember the bravery and sacrifices of our armed forces. However, we must also acknowledge the ongoing mental health battles many veterans face long after their service ends. This film serves as a reminder that help is available, and no one should suffer in silence.”

Since its founding in 2009, PTSD Resolution has received over 4,000 referrals, completing therapy in an average of seven sessions. The charity’s unique approach allows them to support veterans facing addiction issues or those in prison, as well as family members who may experience secondary trauma from living with a traumatised veteran.

The film launch is part of PTSD Resolution’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness and provide support to the armed forces community. With a lean operation and no salaried staff or assets, the charity ensures that funds are used primarily to deliver therapy and conduct essential research and public information campaigns.
