Your donations can help to provide hope to everyone affected by PTSD – Thank you.
PTSD is an incredibly misunderstood condition – and many people are not aware of it’s existence.
PTSD UK was set up with the aims of reaching people with PTSD who need support and information, along with finding those people who may not even know they have PTSD.
In order to do this, we need to reach everyone in the UK!
PTSD UK is currently the only charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder – no matter the trauma that caused it.
We rely entirely on your donations and fundraising activities to make this happen. We receive no funding, but by keeping our running costs to a minimum, we can put more of your money directly to achieving our mission.
Evidence suggests that around 70% of people who suffer with PTSD in the UK do not receive any professional help at all, and many of those who are aware they have it are not getting the help and support they need.
Our charity aims to raise awareness of PTSD in three main areas – it’s causes, symptoms and the treatments available. These 3 areas are of vital importance to those suffering with the condition.
Your donations and fundraising allows us to continue our mission to provide support and information for anyone affected by PTSD – those with the condition themselves, and their friends and family around them.
- £5 could place our information leaflets into high-risk communities to provide them with the information they may desperately need
- £10 could help us reach out to those who need our help via social media and other online platforms
- £25 could provide vital information on our website to someone who is seeking help to know that ‘tomorrow can be a new day’
- £100 could help us campaign for better services from the Government and the NHS, so more people get the support they need, as early as possible.
While striving towards this mission, we undertake a variety of activities:
We reach out to high-risk communities to ensure that people are aware that they are at risk (or that they work in an environment where they will come into contact with high risk individuals) so should be aware of the symptoms to look out for, and the treatment options available.
We support those with the condition (and those around them) to lead to successful treatments through knowledge and providing the correct tools
Where possible, we influence organizations, policies and guidelines relating to the care and awareness of those with PTSD, ensuring that we’re all driving towards the same goal – a world where PTSD is recognized, and effectively treated in as short a timescale as possible.
