Million Pound Appeal Launched For Veterans' Mental Health

Million Pound Appeal Launched For Veterans' Mental Health

Veterans' mental health charity Combat Stress is launching a £10 million appeal today, to meet the increasing demand from younger veterans for its services.

The Prince of Wales, who's Patron of Combat Stress, will launch the appeal tonight at a reception at St James's Palace on the first day of Mental Health Awareness Week.

The At Ease appeal aims to raise the money over three years to help fund services such as the PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Intensive Treatment Programme, short stay clinical treatment and a free 24-hour helpline and text number.

The charity's president General Sir Peter Wall said the campaign will transform the lives of service men and women who have paid a "high price" for their nation.
