Our society has been continuously at war since 1939, the start of WWII. Each and every day, for the last 74 years, war has been News - taking seconds to report the loss of life, and a lifetime to suffer the resulting trauma,
With millions of veterans having already fought, and war continuing to predominate society, not only will we continue to hear of war every day for the rest of our lives, but so will our children.
Many future generations will be affected by the resultant war trauma, such as Combat Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CR-PTSD). With devastating effects on the individual, their children, families, and those close to them, affecting our society as a whole.
If you are able to imagine living in terror, every second of every single day, you will begin to appreciate how CR-PTSD sufferers can be driven to attempt suicide, and are prone to alcohol and drug related abuse in trying to abate their symptoms. With consequences of marital and/or mental breakdown, imprisonment, homelessness, and unemployment.
Until global harmony has been achieved, we aim to raise public awareness of CR-PTSD and remove the associated stigma, by creating a bridge of understanding between sufferers and the community, through the use of visual art.
We also aim to provide a central point of information for those seeking help. Encouraging sufferers to come forward early, to receive treatment before a health or domestic crisis has occurred.
We also use collaborative art exhibitions, to raise funds for the charities that help veterans whose lives have fallen apart. Providing them with the help they need to regain confidence and self esteem.

If you would also like to become involved in raising awareness of
CR-PTSD, and funds for charities such as The Royal British Legion, by hosting an art exhibition or any other event, then we would be delighted if you would contact us or donate to support our aims.
