We are verteran's army

Veteran’s Army was founded in 2021 by Ryan Yates, a former soldier who suffered from PTSD following his military career.

After losing former colleagues and friends to suicide, an all-too-common occurrence among the veteran community, Ryan decided to combat his mental health in the public domain in the hope of helping those who were suffering too and prevent further deaths.

Since then, Veteran’s Army has teamed up with a number of organisations across the North West and further afield in the UK to provide counselling and support, training and employment courses and funding to former service personnel who are struggling.

Join the Community

Veteran’s Army aims to be accessible as possible to those who are suffering, whether it’s on Facebook where we host regular lives and QnAs, our online platform or just popping in for a coffee and chat.

However we communicate, the objective is always the same. To help people understand their power to overcome poor mental health and live their life to the full.

We’ve all earned our place in society, now it’s time to enjoy it.

So please support us by following our social channels, joining our online platform and promoting our message among the veteran community.
