Healthier Force Project

The Healthier Force project will work with ex-military personnel whereby the levels of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are high, often manifesting in episodic behaviour associated with fear, aggression and anxiety overlaid by self-medicating using alcohol and illegal drugs (although not in all cases).

This tailor made programme supports ex-military personnel that suffer with PTSD. The programme is delivered over a 10 week period using virtual reality and low level Exposure Therapy (ET) intervention to overcome mental and emotional debilitating episodes of cognitive imbalance / impairment. Each beneficiary of this programme will receive 1 30-45 minute session per week for up to 10 weeks. During this time, anxiety levels are recorded using recognised tools such as GAD7, PHQ-9, heart rate and general demeanour.

The Healthier Force project provides a service for vulnerable and socially isolated people and gives the necessary techniques to reduce their levels of mental and emotional anguish experienced through PTSD.
