It should be obvious that working in uniformed service can bring danger and stress. Everyday our uniformed services work long hours in sometimes dangerous conditions. They keep us all safe, but sometimes this can come at personal cost.
It’s an unfortunate reality that these people can, and often do get hurt physically and mentally. It can be the same for veterans of all of the services. A firefighter who has witnessed the aftermath of a diabolical blaze. A police office attacked by criminals. A soldier out on the front line, witnessing horrors that many of us could probably never imagine.
These can lead to PTSD,depression, phobias, anxiety, relationship problems, drink and drugs.
