SSR Personnel Charity Golf Day in aid of PTSD Resolution: 22.9.14

Stapleford Abbotts Golf and Country Club is the venue for SSR Personnel’s upcoming Charity Golf Day in aid of PTSD Resolution, which takes place on Monday 22 September 2014.

PTSD Resolution is a charity (No 1133188) that offers counselling with a 78% success rate to UK Armed Forces’ TA and Regular Reserves and dependants in order to relieve mental health problems resulting from military service and ease reintegration into a normal work and family life.

The PTSD Resolution national outreach programme has over 200 counsellors. It is private, confidential, local and one-to-one. No referral is needed, thus reducing any sense of stigma. Counselling is brief and effective – an average of five one-hour sessions.

PTSD Resolution also offers employers trauma awareness training to support the successful integration of veterans and reservists in the workplace. The half-day modular courses enable line managers and HR staff to recognise potential symptoms of trauma and identify a clear route to resolving any workplace difficulties.
