I am looking for information that clarifies the following question. If a serviceman or woman diagnosed with PTSD or PTSD type problems embarks on a course of alternative or complementary therapy, and subsequently makes a full and complete recovery. Does this have any impact on his or her pension or disability allowance? This question is raised as part of research for http://www.ptsdhelp.co.uk/ using the example that if a serviceman / woman loses a limb and receives a prosthetic limb they can become an Olympic athlete if they desire or continue on a relatively normal life injury not withstanding without loosing their Pension or disability allowance. Because PTSD is an emotional injury with no physical damage (for the purpose of this question any physical injury is separate from the question)and many sufferers do not seek help for fear of loosing their pension or allowance and this is seen as a barrier to them seeking treatment. Your responses and experiences are welcomed.
