Page Background

In December 2018, we commissioned a

survey which revealed that 30% of Veterans

with psychological wounds say they have

never reached out for support. For those

that have, it takes an average of four years

before they ask for help.

WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS TOO LONG.

This year, we are asking the nation to help us call time

on the stigma that surrounds mental health issues

amongst Veterans. Those who have served often find

it difficult to ask for help, with fear of stigma one of

the major reasons.

No Veteran should feel the need to suffer in silence

and we want to ensure that those who are in need of

mental health support know how and where they are

able to access it, as soon as they need to.
