Armed Forces Mental Health First Aid Course

7 of our hard working, dedicated volunteers took a 2 day Armed Forces Mental Health First Aid course to learn how to Approach, Listen and Engage with those in crisis.  On a basic level, they`ll have an awareness of Mental Illness and be equipped with the  skills and techniques for minimalising crisis situations.   This is professionally recognised training that can be added to a volunteer's CV.



The course was provided for free by Models for Heroes, the venue provided by RAF Benson and the course delivered by Sgt. Sasha White, an accredited MHFA trainer from MHFAEngland.org

Gallantry Art selling Models for Heroes

The online art gallery Gallantry Art have partnered with us to sell some of the amazing detailed models that our talented veterans have made.  These scale models have a very real, very raw human story of bravery, pain or elation behind them.    A percentage of the sale goes to Combat Stress as well as ourselves to raise funds.
