Highlighting the Lack of Help for Ex Service Personnel Suffering from Mental Health Illness Caused by Serving their Country

The charity ‘Help for Heroes’ is doing a great job in raising money for the injured soldiers and making donations to ex services charities. There is good press and TV coverage of Help for Heroes events that help raise money for injured ex serving soldiers.

Sadly, the ex services with shattered minds due to their service to their country are being overlooked.
