The Guide is very informative, I related to it. Thanks for letting me open up. I find it helps knowing that someone else knows. It feels very scary reading the Guide and relating it to myself but you are a lifeline.

Thanks for the Guide, I think it’s great and the first time I read it I thought you had wrote about my life, I could see so much of me in it.

- Northern Ireland veteran

I don’t think I will ever be able to put into words what the Guide means to me: it has changed my life. From the moment I first read a few pages, to now, reading it in its entirety.

- Tracey, ex-psychiatric nurse and sufferer of PTSD

Thanks so much for the Guide. The Police, Psychiatric and Probation Services took no notice of my twenty-year service

- Special Forces highly decorated veteran

Many thanks for sending me your Survival Guide to combat related PTSD. The Guide really opened my eyes and hit me like an express train because it showed me what had been happening and how PTSD had destroyed my life. Once again, many thanks for your work. Hopefully your Guide will open a few people’s eyes to the problems that veterans are facing and for action to be taken to help the ever increasing number of PTSD sufferers. Keep up the good work.

- Bosnia and Gulf War veteran

Only soldiers can talk to soldiers and understand. Thanks, there are a lot of hurt men out there who need help.
