Psychiatrist and mental health academic, Professor Neil Greenberg, has been awarded a prestigious Help for Heroes ‘Hero’ award.
The award came at the Help for Heroes, Hero Awards 2013, held at Tedworth House Recovery Centre in Wiltshire on Friday 17 October 2013.
Professor Greenberg served in the Royal Navy for 24 years, finishing his military career in July 2013 as Head of Military Mental Health.
He has used his vast experience in military and occupational mental health to provide expert support, advice and input to Help for Heroes for a number of years. The value of his expertise was rightly recognised with the prestigious award – seen as the equivalent of the ‘Victoria Cross’ by the charity.
As well as his work for Help for Heroes, Professor Greenberg supports the work of veterans and is the Royal College of Psychiatrists Lead for Veterans’ Mental Health.
Speaking about his award, Professor Greenberg said: “I feel very honoured to have been recognised with this award. I am glad that I can use my experience and area of expertise to help the team at Help for Heroes with the fantastic work they do.
“I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future to continue to support our service personnel.”
Bryn Parry, CEO and Co-Founder of Help for Heroes said: “Neil’s incredible commitment to support our wounded has helped Help for Heroes to understand the many services which are available to those suffering from mental health issues. By acting as a pro bono consult to the charity, Neil has saved the charity considerable expense and his willingness to help with such immediacy is simply invaluable. We are immensely grateful to Neil for sharing our passion to support those who have suffered a life-changing injury or illness as a result of their service.”
Professor Greenberg continues to practice as an academic, and consultant occupational and forensic, psychiatrist. A leader in mental health research, his work at Kings College, London has established him as one of the leading experts in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the UK.
He is also a leading expert in trauma management and the current President-Elect of the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. He also runs psychological resilience consultancy March on Stress which works with organisations worldwide to prevent, detect and treat operational stress, including PTSD, to build resilience in those that work in harm’s way.
