Winner of the Soldiering on award 2021

Anxious Minds are delighted to have won the Soldiering on award 2021 (health and rehabilitation award).

We have a combined experience of over 80 years working within the Armed Forces Community

It should be obvious that working in a uniformed service can bring danger and stress. Every day our uniformed services work long hours in sometimes very dangerous conditions. They keep us all safe, but sometimes this can come at a 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 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.

Anxious Minds understands that wounds sustained in the service of your duties is not always physical and can affect anyone,  Our founder was diagnosed with clinical depression, chronic anxiety and PTSD, after he left the Armed Forces on completion of 22 years of service and struggled to find support.  We understand that the real battle for those affected in service can often begin at home. We are able to offer confidential support to those suffering from anxiety and depression, safe in the knowledge that they will be looked after and supported when needed.

It is crucial to understand that, no matter how much of a grip your anxiety or depression has on you at the moment, it CAN be removed or managed with the right support, together we can beat anxiety and depression. If you are a veteran of any of the services, then just give us a call.
