Ray Lock, Chief Executive of the Forces in Mind Trust, said: “The findings from this pilot study show that tele-therapy is an approach to treatment that could benefit ex-Service personnel, in particular those who find it difficult to engage in face-to-face therapy. The recommendations and lessons learned in this trial offer an opportunity for policymakers and service providers to take tele-therapy forward as a cost-effective, feasible and acceptable service for UK Veterans with PTSD.”

Dr Dominic Murphy, Head of Research at Combat Stress and lead author of the study, said: “We were pleased with our results. Importantly, we had positive feedback from veterans telling us they found tele-therapy to be a good way to receive support. Several people told us that they were not able to engage in face-to-face therapy but tele-therapy allowed to them to complete treatment.”
