Many of our current and former serving service men and women have returned home suffering from mental illness attributed to their service.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been shown to affect one in four of our veterans.
Paramedics, Police Officers, Firefighters and other Emergency Service personnel are at elevated risk of suffering from PTSD as a result of their experiences in defending and protecting our citizens.
Many other people suffer the debilitating effects of PTSD arising from Childhood Sexual Abuse, Motor Vehicle Accidents, Witness to Criminal Actions, Abuse and other traumatic incidents. They too find it difficult to associate with friends and acquaintances who do not have the same life experiences.
