Signposting for PTSD Support
Part of our fundraising initiative is to support clinical research into therapies for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We keep seeing stories in the media of soldiers taking their own lives because they cannot deal with the horrors they have seen at war. Therapies could help reduce the number of suicides by signposting veterans to treatments that has a success rate in life improvement for those that suffer.
HTW Support is proud to have had a paper based on our work with veterans published in the Mental Health Review Journal in December 2014. The paper shows that veterans who had been provided with support from us showed improvements, and continued to show these improvements months later, depicted by the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS).
