The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) team at South East and Central Essex Mind have been busy evaluating the success of the PTSD service which has been running over the last 5 years, kindly funded by the Big Lottery. Findings show that 234 people have received PTSD counselling or psychoeducational sessions from Mind in just under the last two years with 95% reporting that the service was either “good” or “excellent”.

Beneficiaries reported finding the environment, counsellors and approach that they used helpful and supportive. Counsellors on the service report a service that has its beneficiaries’ best interests at heart in an organisation that feels passionately about mental ill health. We are incredible proud of all our staff and volunteers who keep the programme operational and of course, to the Big Lottery, for giving us this opportunity to help those experiencing PTSD.
