The number of British veterans of the Afghanistan conflict who have received treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder has increased dramatically over the last five years, figures from a mental health charity indicate.
Combat Stress told ITV News it treated 102 Afghan war veterans for PTSD in March 2010.
Five years later, in March 2015, that number had risen dramatically to 945.
Additional statistics on PTSD treatment from Combat Stress also show that on average veterans wait approximately 13 years before seeking treatment for the condition.
