Our nominated charity for this year is Combat Stress
Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health. Founded at the end of the First World War in 1919, the charity helps those ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences, providing life-changing mental health treatment.
For some of those who have served, life as we know it can be shattered without the help of Combat Stress. Mental health problems can tear families apart, destroy relationships and devastate lives. Many veterans hit rock bottom before seeking help - the charity's staff are often told 'Combat Stress saved my life'
For over a century the charity has helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. Today it provides specialist treatment and support to veterans from every service and every conflict to give them hope and a future.
