Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi
    I am due to go to a combat stress centre for treatment. Just wondered if any arrse members have been and has it helped them ? been given an outline on what to expect just wanted to know members opinion on what the centres are like and what i can expect.
     
  2. The one in Leatherhead is superb and you will be in very good hands. You can trust the therapists and there's a lot of good banter from the other people who are there with you. That's the key, imho, being able to talk to people who have had similar experiences - from the Falklands to the 'Stan and one bloke who had had a close call in a Lightning.

    One major tip: lay off the booze. The booze will do for you.

    All the very best.
     
  3. I have some numbers for you to speak to those at head office. Im sure you are after the ground level views though.

    But if you need them just PM me or ask on here.

    Good luck with your rehab btw.

    Some people do anything for some time off!! :D
