We are fundraising April 2017 until April 2018 for PTSD999 is an independent Charity focusing on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder amongst emergency service workers and ex-military.
We aimed throughout the year to raise £2000 - This is PART2 of the fundraising - PART1 raised £1047 (https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/OLWD-PTSD999) so we are well on target!
PTSD999 is unique in the way it will provide support to those in need. The majority of its trustees, administrators and most importantly doctors and counselling staff have served in the Emergency Services and/or Military and suffered PTSD, or have close ties with someone who has.
The remit of PTSD999 is simply to provide help, advice and confidential treatment to those in need and offer support to the families of current and ex members of the Emergency services and ex-military staff.
The vision of PTSD999 is to ensure that the Emergency services do not suffer in silence but instead have access to the resources and support they deserve and need. To remove stigma, embarrassment and worry about asking for help without fear of it going on their record and fear of losing everything. They aim to deliver support in a timely manner in an environment based on respect, kindness and collaboration that serves not only the individual but, where needed, the whole family.
One in 2 people will experience some form of trauma in their lifetime, 20% of these will go on to develop PTSD.
Emergency Service workers are the everyday forgotten heroes. Through the course of a week they deal with many complex and potentially traumatic incidents, often completely unaware of what horrors they may face ahead. 87% of Emergency Service workers suffer some form of mental trauma resulting in depression, and mental health issues, this results in 1 in 4 emergency service workers considering taking their own lives. The devastating effects of PTSD can and often lead to a cycle of family break-up, loss of employment, addictions to drugs or alcohol and homelessness.
