Front-line medics need support similar to soldiers in war zones, according to the armed forces charity Help for Heroes.
A frontline worker says he has been on a mission this month to raise awareness on Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.
Mental health engagement worker, Chris Thomas, works with St Mungo's in Bristol and has been working with people who are going through CPTSD, a mental health issue that he says not many people have heard of.
CPTSD can be diagnosed in adults or children who have repeatedly experienced traumatic events, such as violence, neglect or abuse.
Mr Thomas said: "A lot of people who have complex trauma grow up thinking there's something wrong with them because they can't explain why their emotions fluctuate uncontrollably, and they feel the way they do."
He added: "It's really powerful for people experiencing CPTSD to understand more about why they are experiencing the symptoms, and equally as important that their friends and family learn and understand what they are going through as well."
Mr Thomas has released a Youtube video explaining what CPTSD is and has crowdfunded more than £900 to help a friend with CPTSD get access to psychotherapy.
