Combat Stress has been in existence since 1919 and, without doubt, provides a life-changing and, on occasion, life saving service.
For more than a century it has provided support to veterans from every service and every conflict. On average, it takes a veteran 13 years to ask for help after leaving their job and, for many, it is their darkest hour and they’re in a crisis situation. Combat Stress offers specialist support to deal with mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression. It offers a range of services and therapy programmes across the UK. In Scotland, it offers residential and community-based care, together with online services, delivered by multi-disciplinary teams working across Scotland.
The charity is at an exciting time of its growth and is seeking a Head of Operations for Scotland who will provide forward thinking and inspirational leadership throughout this period and beyond.
