PTSD UK is the only charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder regardless of what trauma caused it.
We believe that supportive and reliable knowledge really is power when it comes to PTSD & C-PTSD. If you understand the types of trauma that can cause PTSD & C-PTSD, the physical, mental and emotional symptoms that are experienced, and, most importantly, the treatments that can help you, then you’ll be able to start down the path to recovery when you’re ready.
PTSD UK is here to provide resources and tools to inspire empowerment and resilience in everyone affected by PTSD & C-PTSD, to help them work towards recovery. We campaign to raise awareness of the condition, reach out to high-risk communities, help shape UK healthcare policies, and give everyone the belief that ‘Tomorrow CAN be a new day‘
