Shop to support mental health

Mental disorder rates have risen among serving personnel and veterans from the UK Armed Forces. New research has estimated the rate of probable post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among ex-operators deployed in a combat role to be over 17% and the rate of common mental disorders (CMDs) to be over 30% [1].
ThruDark is committed to supporting our military brothers battling against mental health and will donate £250 per SF Expedition Parka sale to not-for-profit operation, Rock2Recovery, over Black Friday weekend. Co-founded by ThruDark supporters, Jamie Sanderson and Jason Fox, Rock2Recovery works hard with those in our Armed Forces and veteran community affected by severe stress.
Around 60% of military servicemen with mental health problems do not reach out for help [2].

Rock2Recovery proactively seeks out distressed veterans and servicemen through multiple communication channels, including social media and word of mouth, to provide them with sound support.
Your £250 contribution will enable Rock2Recovery to provide a lifesaving session to a member of the Armed Forces or veteran community in serious crisis.
With twenty-seven years of combined military service, ThruDark co-founders appreciate and admire the help Rock2Recovery provides current and ex-serving military personnel. Their mission to inspire, coach and motivate those affected towards a brighter and more positive future is life changing to many.
