PTSD Resolution Appoints Security Industry Ambassadors


PTSD Resolution Appoints Security Industry Ambassadors

Graham Bassett and Mike Hurst, security industy recruitment specialists, have been appointed as Ambassadors to represent the charity PTSD Resolution. Both are Vice Chairmen of ASIS in the UK – a leading organisation for security professionals that has 35,000 members worldwide

Colonel Tony Gauvain (Retired), Chairman of PTSD Resolution says:-

“The appointments reflect the outstanding support given by Graham and Mike, through their work with ASIS in helping PTSD Resolution. They have helped us many times, in many different ways by organising fund-raising receptions and many other events. They have helped to ensure wide recognition within the security sector, where many Forces’ veterans work – some with residual mental health issues from their time in the armed services.”

Graham Bassett and Mike Hurst were instrumental in ASIS UK becoming the first security membership organisation to provide mental health support as a service to members, through the PTSD Resolution network of 200 approved therapists.

Members of ASIS UK who think that they may be suffering from the effects of a traumatic event, whatever the cause, can contact PTSD Resolution free of charge in order to access support, usually in a matter of days. Support is provided locally and requires no GP referral.

The service is also extended to the families of members of ASIS UK – whether their trauma results from an accident at work or home for example.

“Mental health support is essential for all those working in security who might be exposed to attack, alarm or general stress resulting from their work. Help must be prompt, local and effective - so the arrangement we have in place with ASIS is a major step forward for the security sector and all those that they protect in the UK and beyond,” says Tony Gauvain.

PTSD Resolution also provides Trauma Awareness Training for Employers (TATE). These half-day courses enable line managers, HR and other staff to recognise the symptoms or trauma amongst staff and then to sign-post treatment.
