OUR MISSION

Our mission at The Stand Easy Club, is to provide help, support & encouragement to all military veterans, their families, partners or NOK (T&C’s apply) who are experiencing a wide range of well-being issues.

 

These typically include; depression, anxiety, social isolation, loneliness and difficulty adjusting to ‘civvy street’.

 

For many veterans & their loved ones, it can be difficult not only asking for help, but also finding the right kind of help and support. Sadly, therapy alone is not always enough. This is because it is time limited meaning that, by the time the service user gets used to the therapist, there may only be a few weeks of meaningful therapy. Also, it is all to often the case that many support groups fail to understand the needs of veterans in crisis or the most appropriate form of support. Additionally, many support groups offer short term support or even cease to operate leaving vulnerable veterans feeling let down, abandoned and untrusting of such groups.

Additionally, unmarried partners receive very little or no support.

In order to address this problem, the goal of the 'standeasyclub' is to provide a peer led, support group that provides long term practical support to veterans and their partners 6-days-a-week. where the support offered is tailored to each individual based on his or her needs and where each veteran is encouraged to help structure their own support plan.
