Description

Veterans United Against Suicide is a not for profit company set up predominantly by Former Royal Marines in support of Veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
In this year alone 35 Vets have taken their own life we believe due to not receiving the help they so desperately needed and our aim is to raise funds and awareness to prevent this from happening again.
A 24 hour online helpline is already available through our sister company Icarus and further funding will allow us to expand this hopefully eventually having a local outreach in every major town in the UK.

Veterans United Against Suicide

My own son is a serving Royal Marine and my hopes for him are that he never has to encounter the horrors of war. Due to the nature of the job this is a very unlikely scenario so Veterans United Against Suicide will be an absolute lifeline to lads like him in the future.
