Combat Stress 100 Film

Made by veterans

A powerful 60-minute film sharing the stories of military veterans

The Combat Stress 100 project was made in partnership with reminiscence charity Age Exchange. It was made possible thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and of course the veterans who shared their stories.

This 60-minute film captures the unguarded stories of military veterans, the camaraderie of basic training, fighting on the front line, the devastating impact of PTSD, and their enduring strength to rebuild their lives.
The film was made by eight veterans who were treated by Combat Stress. They were trained to film and conduct interviews with fellow veterans who have also been supported by the charity. Right across the UK, veterans sat down in front of the camera and gave unfiltered and profoundly moving accounts of their experiences.

For over 100 years, we have provided specialist mental health support to former servicemen and women from every service and every conflict. Some may find the stories in the project hard to hear, as a charity we feel it’s important that they are heard. If you're a veteran struggling with your mental health our helpline is open 24hr to take your call on 0800 138 1619.
