Armed Forces Personnel and PTSD
There are large amounts of Armed Forces Personnel currently suffering with PTSD, whether currently still serving or as a Veteran.
PTSD is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms may start within one month of a traumatic event, but sometimes symptoms may not appear until years after the event. These symptoms cause significant problems in social or work situations and in relationships. They can also interfere with your ability to go about your normal daily tasks.
Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function.
After serving in the RAF for 12 years and having met and served with some fantastic people, some of who have suffered with and some who are suffering with PTSD, i feel very strongly about what support is available to these individuals. There are some fantastic organisations available to these people and i would like to raise as much money as possible to allow these organisations to continue this support.
