Fight or flight: the veterans at war with PTSD - video        G        Thu 8 Nov 2018        12.03 GMT

 

One hundred years on

from the end of the first world war,

a group of veterans in Dorset

are torn between their pride in their military careers

and their anger over the lack of psychological support

provided to them by the Ministry of Defence.

 

With many feeling abandoned

and left to battle significant mental health issues

such as PTSD alone,

former soldier Andy Price

decides to take matters into his own hands,

launching the Veteranís Hub,

a peer-to-peer support network

for veterans and their families.

 

Over the course of a year,

the Guardianís Richard Sprenger

follows Andy on his journey.
