Each year we see an average of 2, referrals. On average it takes 13 years after leaving the military for veterans to contact Combat Stress for help, by which time their condition is often highly complex.
However, veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts are coming to Combat Stress much sooner three and four years respectively.
