In the UK over 1.3 million people provide over 50 hours of care per week. And those caring for veterans may face additional difficulties, due to life-changing injuries that make day-to-day living even more challenging.

According to Carers UK those providing care are twice as likely to be permanently sick themselves, so it’s important to try and stay one step ahead. Do you need help managing your general stress levels for instance? Combat Stress, the UK’s leading mental health charity for veterans, provides free evidence-based clinical treatment and support to ex-servicemen and women of the UK Armed Forces.
