This event will bring together a high profile Panel to discuss Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from combat, emergency services and journalism perspectives. The Panel will consider a number of questions such as if enough is being done to help those experiencing PTSD in their chosen careers; and where does the responsibility lie to ensure that vital support is offered?

We are delighted that the Panel will be chaired by Professor Neil Greenberg, Royal College of Psychiatrists and Veterans’ Health President of the UK Psychological Trauma Society. The Panellists include:

Former Royal Marines Commando Sniper Sergeant Jamie Sanderson and former Special Forces Sergeant 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, Jason Fox (Foxy) who have set-up the charity Rock2Recovery to support ex service personnel experiencing PTSD.

Matthew Green, British journalist (Reuters and Financial Times) and author of Aftershock: fighting war, surviving trauma and finding peace.

Simon Lee, Co-Founder of PTSD999 a charity set up to assist those within the emergency services sector experiencing PTSD.
