A charity who supports veterans across the UK says they have seen calls rise for help since the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan.

One ex-soldier who was medically discharged says the flashbacks to that time of her life gives her nightmares after previously diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Veterans affected by PTSD or in need of advice can contact Help for Heroes at www.helpforheroes.org.uk.

Anyone feeling emotionally distressed or suicidal can call Samaritans for help on 116 123 or email jo@samaritans.org in the UK. In the US, call the Samaritans branch in your area or 1 (800) 273-TALK.
