PTSD Resolution is a charity (No. 1133188) that helps Veterans, Reservists and Families who are struggling to reintegrate into a normal work & family life because of military trauma suffered during service in the armed forces. Their Mission is to ensure effective therapy for military PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Post Traumatic Symptoms and Secondary Traumatic Stress).
The programme is community-based, with treatment and support provided locally. Through a nationwide network of 200 accredited therapists, PTSD Resolution provides treatment to enable Veterans and Reservists to resolve the mental health problems associated with military trauma that obstruct a normal range of family and work relationships
PTSD Resolution helps ex-service men and women who have mental health problems following service in the UK armed forces. PTSD Resolution is an independent charity that aims to work with the people other services do not reach or have not been able to help. They work in prisons, for example, and are generally able to work with traumatised people who have alcohol and drug problems provided they are able to engage in therapy.
For those clients who engage with the therapeutic process and meet their appointments the outcomes from PTSD Resolution are very good, even when the trauma is long-standing and severe.
However, PTSD Resolution is not a mental health crisis service. If you are in danger or have severe mental health problems please ring your GP; if there is a strong element of risk then contact the mental health crisis team, or if absolutely necessary the emergency services.
Their Mission is to ensure effective therapy for military PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Post Traumatic Symptoms and Secondary Traumatic Stress).
Better access and availability of treatment for all veterans of the UK armed services, TA, reservists and their dependents.
The PTSD Resolution programme involves a series of one-hour therapy sessions on a one-to-one, out-patient basis, to relieve veterans of disabling symptoms. A single course of treatment is usually all that's required, delivered through a national network of therapists, trained in HGT (Human Givens Therapy) - a successful therapy for dealing with mental distress.
PTSD Resolution treatment meets the special needs of veterans and reservists. It is effective without the therapist or anyone else ever knowing about the events that caused the trauma. This ensures confidentiality.
It protects the patient from further distress, and therapists from hearing about often extremely disturbing incidents. These are important safeguards.
They are also doing new research and raising awareness of the causes and treatment of post traumatic stress. PTSD is little understood by veterans and reservists - or their families, friends or employers, the people who are often very much affected by the destructive behaviour associated with the condition.
A key area of research will be the plight of veterans in the prison and probation system – who number some 20,000 today.
