Recognising Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

EDM number 197 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 17/07/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces welfare, Mental health and Veterans.

That this House congratulates the Sunday People on its Save Our Soldiers campaign to raise awareness of the devastating impact of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); notes Lord Dannatt's view that failure to recognise PTSD as a serious and debilitating condition breaches the Military Covenant and the Government is therefore breaking the law; calls for an independent inquiry to explore any link between incidents of suicide amongst veterans and PTSD and how better to co-ordinate help across the country for those affected; and asks the Ministry of Defence to give PTSD the priority it warrants.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
