Chris Davies MP has thrown his weight behind a course being offered by Sylvia Davies who is working alongside SSAFA (The Armed Forces Charity and Change Step (Support for Military Veterans in Wales).
The course consists of six meetings over a six week period aimed at former members of the Armed Forces. The attendees will participate in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) treatment.
Chris Davies MP said:
“We have a large serving and former military population here in Brecon and Radnorshire and there are a number who suffer from PTSD.
In the past mental health has not been addressed in the same way as physical health and I am proud that this has begun to change over the last few years and mental health is being given the focus it deserves.
I would encourage anyone who suffers from PTSD to get in touch with SSAFA, Change Step or my office to put you in touch with Sylvia. This is an excellent course being offered free of charge to those who need help.”
