From injury to independence
Last year, 1,578 UK regular armed forces personnel were medically discharged, representing approximately four per day. For Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force personnel one of the most common causes of medical discharge was Mental and Behavioural Disorders, which has increased since 2015.
For some veterans, the path to independence and employment can be a struggle which is greatly improved by managing and developing their physical and mental health.
Since being founded as Skiing with Heroes in 2012, we have developed needs-based, veteran-led, programmes to assist those who are the most vulnerable.
We offer sessions in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to reduce symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression and pain. This increases veterans' ability to find meaningful work, achieve their goals and connect with family and their community.
