Combat Stress is a UK charity offering residential treatment to ex-servicemen and women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental health issues. The Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society was formed in the United Kingdom in 1919 just after the First World War when the effects of Shell Shock were becoming known. During the 1980s it became known as Combat Stress for public relations purposes although legally is still known by its original name. It is a registered UK Charity. The soldiers returning home from World War I suffered greatly from the horrors they had witnessed. Many returning veterans suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, called shell shock at the time.In 1915 The British Army in France was instructed that: Shell-shock and shell concussion cases should have the letter 'W' prefixed to the report of the casualty, if it were due to the enemy; in that case the patient would be entitled to rank as 'wounded' and to wear on his arm a 'wound stripe'
