Remembrance Day Virtual Reception:
PTSD Resolution & Armed Forces Covenant, Nov 10th, 6pm
A major initiative to promote the mental welfare of Forces’ Veterans, Reservists and their families working in commerce and the public sector is highlighted in a virtual reception on November 10th at 6pm.
Attending the online event will be senior business and public sector decision-makers: signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant, and those with a CSR, Corporate and Social Responsibility, role or an interest in workplace mental health and that of Forces’ Veterans, Reservists and their families in particular.
They will hear about opportunities to work in partnership with PTSD Resolution, in support of the Armed Forces Covenant.
It is also an occasion to commemorate Remembrance Day, Nov 11, and the 3,000th mental health treatment referral by PTSD Resolution, says Colonel A Gauvain (Retired)
Chairman, PTSD Resolution.
PTSD Resolution is a leading forces’ charity providing free mental health therapy to traumatised Veterans, Reservists and their families.
Its expertise is in trauma resolution, delivering help through a network of 200 therapists nationwide, and also online during the pandemic. Therapy is fast, effective and confidential, with nearly 3,000 referrals to date. It features a ‘lean’ management operation, with no salaried staff or assets, says Tony Gauvain - funds are used to deliver the therapy, with essential research and public information communications.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
