Partnerships and Alliances

At PTSD UK, we understand the power of community, and in order to strengthen and maximise our impact, we collaborate and partner with organisations, experts and groups who share our vision to transform the lives of people affected by PTSD and C-PTSD. As such, we’re proud members of a number of alliances and partnerships which help support those with PTSD and C-PTSD in some more specific areas – further increasing the number of people we can reach and support.

Proud members of The Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA)

The MMHA is a UK-wide charity and network of over 100 organisations, dedicated to ensuring everyone affected by perinatal mental problems have access to high-quality comprehensive care and support. The MMHA brings the maternal mental health community together and make change happen by combining the power of real-life experience with clinical and professional expertise.

Proud members of The National Suicide Prevention Alliance

The NSPA is an alliance of public, private and voluntary organisations in the UK who care about suicide prevention and are willing to take individual and collective action to reduce suicide and self-harm, and support those bereaved or affected by suicide.
Studies have shown that people who have experienced a traumatic event and/or have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD or C-PTSD) are more likely to attempt suicide. Find out more about the link between suicide and PTSD here. 

Proud members of Zero Suicide Alliance

The Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) aims to empower, educate, and equip individuals and organisations to support suicide awareness and prevention. They are UK based and hosted by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust Charity.

Proud members of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition
The CYPMHC’s aim is to bring together leading charities to campaign jointly on the mental health and wellbeing of infants, children and young people and ensure that collectively our voices are heard. We do this by jointly responding to government consultations, holding member events, contributing to briefings and sharing our member’s work.

Proud members of the Baby Loss Awareness Alliance
The Baby Loss Awareness Alliance are committed to raising awareness of pregnancy and baby loss, providing support to anyone affected by pregnancy loss and the death of a baby, working with health professionals and services to improve bereavement care, and reducing preventable deaths. 

Proud members of the Global Compassion Coalition

The Global Compassion Coalition believe that compassion gives us the strength, wisdom, and courage to attend to suffering, build bridges, and diffuse conflict. It increases our own and other people’s happiness, fosters connection, and provides meaning. 

Imagine if that power could be harnessed. Imagine if we could inspire individuals, organisations, and governments to act from a place of compassion, to attend to suffering, and build communities of care and belonging.  This is the job of the Global Compassion Coalition.

Proud members of a working group requesting the Government undertake a review of fireworks legislation
This group includes Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Blue Cross, British Veterinary Association, Cats Protection, Children’s Burns Trust, Combat Stress, Dan’s Fund for Burns, Help for Heroes, The Kennel Club and PTSD UK amongst others.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
