The Security Institute is delighted to announce that it helped raise £28,795.79 for its Chairman’s Charity PTSD Resolution in 2014. It raised £14,177.53 at various Security Institute events during 2014. In addition to this amount, The Security Institute also jointly raised £14,618.26 at the inaugural Joint Security Associations Annual Fundraising Event which took place on 30th September 2014.

Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner to work with throughout the year. PTSD Resolution is a charity that offers a unique service counselling to the UK Armed Forces, TA and Regular Reserves, including their dependants, to relieve mental health problems resulting from Military Service and the traumas that they have faced. The PTSD Resolution Outreach Programme has over 200 counsellors trained in trauma-focussed cognitive behavioural therapy and provides a valuable contact point for anyone requiring counselling, complimentary to the work of the other armed forces charities.

Emma Shaw, Chairman of the Security Institute commented “PTSD is something that wrecks lives and destroys families yet treatment is relatively simple once the symptoms are diagnosed. With each course of treatment costing around £550 per PTSD sufferer, we have ensured that 52 more lives will be put back together and 52 ex-servicemen or women can get on with their lives with full peace of mind.”

Patrick Rea, a trustee of PTSD Resolution, echoed these words:”PTSD is often hidden from view but has serious implications, with high suicide and offender rates amongst veterans. We rely on the support of the public to help us to fund treatment for these men and women. The support of the Security Institute in making us their dedicated charity is most welcome.”
