Mental Health For Veterans started this petition to Theresa May and

We all know of charities that help veterans that have had body disfigurement/amputations whilst being in action, however the government don’t seem to care about the mental state of the person who comes back from war torn countries and how it can affect them. They are more than happy to send of hundreds of our people to fight for our country but what happens when they come home? Who looks out for them? Our government need to address and care more about the mental state of the soldiers that do come home and how it is affecting them and their loved ones, Suicide rates, homelessness, divorce, drug and alcohol abuse are only a few of the things that they turn to when no one offers the help. A close friend of my who was a veteran, seen unspeakable things when he served his time in Iraq. He came home to his wife and 4 daughters but he was not the same man, because of what he seen he has night terrors, sleeps with a knife under his pillow, has turned to alcohol and drugs and has attempted suicide twice. The councilling he received was an hour every 2 weeks! The government need to be giving these veterans more resources to help them, as they are to blame!
