Our director, Professor Neil Greenberg, officially passed his UK Psychological Trauma Society (UKPTS) presidency to incoming President Dr Cherie Armour at the recent UKPTS conference – after completing his three-year term.
He said: “My three years as UKPTS President have been challenging but enjoyable. I have been privileged to work with a great team and feel that the three years have been very productive. I am particularly proud of the three guidance documents my board has produced, including one on the organisational management of traumatic stress. Most recently we have published our guidance document on the treatment of complex PTSD, which I hope will make a positive difference to many people’s lives.”
Well done to Professor Greenberg on a great three years at the helm. Find some of the guidance documents he helped to produce on the UKPTS website.
We are delighted to be providing mental health care and support to the veterinary community through our new clinical partnership with the charity Vetlife. Vetlife provides free and confidential support to anyone in the UK veterinary community who has emotional, health or financial problems. Through the Vetlife Health Support function, we will be providing evidence-based mental health assessment, support, advice and treatment.
Our Business Development Director, Georgina Godden, said: “It’s fantastic to see the support that Vetlife has in place for those working in veterinary roles. The March on Stress Clinical Team is looking forward to helping them to make a positive difference to the wellbeing of personnel across the industry, from veterinary students to veterinary surgeons.”
March on Stress has an experienced team of mental health professionals, whose practice is guided by what has proven to be successful, using the latest evidence and research. If your organisation would like to learn more about our Clinical Services then please get in touch.
A new study has identified the importance of building a resilient workforce outside of a crisis. It also identified that pre-disaster training in recognising signs of distress, understanding vulnerability factors (which may put certain employees at greater risk of distress) and how to support colleagues may be useful.

In further research news - a systematic review has been undertaken to examine evidence of stigma-related barriers to mental health seeking in the Armed Forces – with the results published last month.
Findings from the review of qualitative studies showed there was substantial evidence of a negative relationship between stigma and help seeking for mental health difficulties within the Armed Forces - further evidence that stigma makes people less likely to seek help for mental health issues. Access the study here.
February saw our Ops Team head to Kenya to deliver TRiM training to the Kenyan Defence Force for the first time. Operations Director Gavin Rogers said: “We had a great group of enthusiastic delegates who were proud to complete the training. It’s fantastic to see such support being put in place and we look forward to returning to Kenya later this year for further training.”
