I believe that PTSD and mental health issue , and well as disabilities amongst our forces still need to be highlighted , to reach as many people as possible .Most of us show our support for forces especially on a veterans day or on a Remembrance day, and even with a public support we are still witnessing our ex servicemen and women on the streets , taking drugs or drinking to much ,suffering mental break down ,PTSD and depression .
I believe we should all know how to spot early signs of PTSD or depression , or at least where to get help - it might not be your husband , boyfriend or son , but it as well be your friend or neighbor that is in a desperate need of help
There i help for our ex servicemen , but in many cases waiting time to get this help is simply to much for some....
I wont most likely create a stir in what needs to be done , but im hoping that through my photography , if i can make at least once person to stop and think -it will be worth wile
Im not going to make any profit from the photos -but if there will be an opportunity to raise some money i will split it between SSAFA (that i help fundraise for ) ,RBL and Combat stress (that received £1000 for my last competition) - i hope that i will be able to create enough exposure to highlight importance of our forces , and that when their service is no longer required they are not forgotten!
I dont want to make money out of it -i hope to get enough exposure by creating gripping portraits
I will not need personal details ,just a photograph and perhaps a short story of your choice
If anyone will be willing to help me with my personal project please contact me making sure you leave your email address or contact number so i can get back to you
