How you help

Your support makes a huge difference

Now more than ever, veterans rely on us and we rely on our supporters. Demand for our services has remained high throughout COVID-19, and with many events cancelled last year, we need your help to raise vital funds so that we can continue to provide our life-saving mental health treatment to veterans.

Who we help

Combat Stress is the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health.  For over a century we’ve been helping former servicemen and women deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. Today we provide specialist treatment and support for veterans from every service and conflict, focusing on those with complex mental health issues.

During the year our Helpline received almost 15,000 calls

Over 3,000 veterans were helped by our charity in the last year

76% of veterans taking part in our six week PTSD Intensive Treatment Programme saw significant improvement in PTSD symptoms

32% of the veterans we support have served in two or more conflicts

When a veteran is having a tough time, we’re there to help tackle the past and to help them take on the future. By taking part in Ride to Victory, your fundraising efforts will make a huge difference to the lives of the former servicemen and women who turn to us for support.
