The classic image of a young person who joins the forces is one of a vibrant individual who leaves home to serve their country; free thinking, fit and healthy. Sadly, all too often they return as a seriously damaged and injured individual. After a period of deep reflection, irrespective of the devotion of their family, they can soon consider themselves a burden. Dealing with unwanted dependency, and their separation from their close comrades, can often cause depression. In some cases this can in turn cause extreme anger, which may manifest itself in violent behaviour; all of this is born out of frustration and an inability to relate to a civilian environment.
Over the past two decades there has been a marked increase in the active service of UK armed forces. Conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq for example have resulted in an increased number of servicemen and woman who have been both physically and psychologically injured. This has placed an increasing demand upon the resources of existing charities and support organisations alike. In recognition of this, Veterans Response was established by a military service provider dealing with personnel who have fought on the front line. We have a close understanding of the nature of events these individuals have witnessed and endured, and this has provided our framework for Veterans Response.
