Are you a military veteran or blue light worker struggling after experiencing trauma?

Would you like to find out about joining an Essex-based angling initiative for those who have experienced trauma?

The University of Essex and iCARP CIC are running a research study to investigate how angling in a peaceful, friendly setting can help military veterans and emergency service personnel living with PTSD.

Previous research has shown that angling can help reduce the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This project will build on this earlier research to gather more evidence that will inform NHS policy around prescribing outdoor activities to support mental health. The hope is that, in the future, this kind of help will be available to all who need it on the NHS.  By becoming a participant, you can help them to achieve this aim.
