PTSD UK is the only charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – the causes, symptoms & the treatments available – no matter the trauma that caused it.
Our vision is to transform the lives of people affected by PTSD, supporting them to take control of their diagnosis, access stigma-free support and resources, and work towards successful, sustained treatment and recovery. We also 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‘.
Developing compassion is a key part of the PTSD recovery process, helping to address feelings of shame and guilt often concurrent with the condition. We wholeheartedly support the GCC in bringing together compassionate individuals to spark change on a global scale, and we believe that we are stronger in community.
