Combat Stress or post traumatic stress disorder PTSD
A great number of our service personnel the trauma of war doesn't end when they return home, Britain faces a "ticking time bomb" of mental illness and suicide among our young armed forces veterans who return home from hand-to-hand combat. A lack of mental health care for veterans, combined with the stress of combat, will mean many survivors of conflict’s pay a heavy price with psychological problems. Servicemen and women are exposed to stresses that most of us would never be exposed to in our lives. In Afghanistan our troops are exposed to these stresses and traumas quite early in their careers.
