You may have heard that the Warrior Programme is a non-profit project in the United Kingdom working with Veterans to eliminate PTSD in a reasonably short period of time using Time Line Therapyâ„¢ techniques in a seminar format. (PTSD is short for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and this is a major problem for huge numbers of veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other combat areas in the Middle East.
Recently the Warrior Programme conducted a random controlled clinical trial with 500 veterans; the results will not be released till the end of the year. The results of the random controlled clinical trial were called “nothing short of excellent,” by David Shephard, a director of the project.
Recently Barclays Bank in the United Kingdom was fined 500 million pounds for fixing the Interbank rates called LIBOR, and the ruling says that the fine had to be donated to charity. So there is a 500 million pound nest egg that will have to be donated to charity
David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in making one of the first awards to charity awarded it to the Warrior Programme and said,
“The fact that more than 500 veterans have already been helped by the Warrior Programme is testament to the dedication and hard work of this organization. I am pleased that these funds will be used to expand their work and offer a new programme tailored specifically for supporting the mental health challenges of families and partners of veterans.”
“These charities are doing important and innovative work to help veterans who are battling mental health problems. We owe these men and women a great debt of gratitude and this is exactly the kind of help we should give to those who have given so much for our country.”
This is the announcement as it appears on the government website
“â€¦The Warrior Programme for Veterans and Families which will receive just over £930,000 to further their efforts to support veterans moving into civilian life. It will enable the charity to expand their programme to include, for the first time, partners and family members managing the stresses of caring for veterans struggling with mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress.”
Congratulations to the entire team. Good job, you guys. Keep up the good work.
