Manage series 2816522
Unguarded, unfiltered and profoundly moving.
Over this six-episode series, you’ll hear the heartrending true stories of UK military veterans who experienced extraordinary events and survived, but not without consequences; post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and, for some, substance misuse. Thankfully, with support from veterans’ mental health charity Combat Stress, these men and women are rebuilding their lives.
Combat Stress worked with UK reminiscence charity Age Exchange to travel the length and breadth of the UK recording interviews with veterans who’ve been treated by Combat Stress. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the charities brought together veterans to tell their powerful stories, often for the first time in public.
Combining clinical insight from world-leading experts and the real experiences of UK military veterans, take a deeper look at the impact of extreme military experiences.
