Rock 2 recovery is committed to signposting individuals if they require medical intervention.
Accessing support is not a sign of weakness and we encourage anyone who requires immediate support to do so.
Creativity has many mental health benefits. We encourage all forms of creativity and believe it can help in the road to recovery. Whether it be music, poetry, photography, art or any other form of creativity. It is entirely up to you.
There are many agencies prepared to help sufferers and families recover from mental health problems. Contacting someone for help is the first step in recovery. We encourage this first step on the journey to recovery.
Firstly, you are not alone. Many other people suffer from stress related illness in the armed forces. If you are suffering from stress related illness because of service then you have given everything. You have fulfilled what was taught to you in training.
We have a number of bands in support of Rock 2 Recovery. "Frank and the w@nke!!es" performed at the Hasler Company Reunion 2014 held at the union jack club, London. Fronted by Lee Spencer RM who constantly raises the bar in his recovery from injury.
As part of our sign posting we would like to draw your attention to expeditions and other adventurous activities that you can engage in. Some of the guys climbed Kilimanjaro recently as part of the baton project. Why not get involved.
Rock 2 Recovery is very thankful to have "Linkin Park" on board. Not only did they provide this message of support. They went a step further. They provided R2R with tickets for their O2 Arena gigs in November 2014. R2R have arranged a trip for members of Hasler company and Headley Court (DMRC), to attend these two gigs courtesy of Linkin Park.
"Big Fat Astronauts" performed at the Hasler Reunion. The guys are young but their music is outstanding. These guys rocked! They are a three piece band and they are fantastic song writers and performers. An up and coming band inspiring creativity in the south west. R2R would like to thank the Big fat astronauts for their continued support in delivering our message.
Chris Mackie is a veteran of the parachute regiment. Here he has created some incredible art work. Chris incorporated these words which R2R engage in regularly. A truly great piece of creativity.
Vision: Our vision is that everybody becomes aware of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress in others and themselves and the signs of when it is time to gain help. To ensure that direction, signposting and connections are easily available for the sufferers in times of trouble. It is also to then ensure that a re-focusing opportunity occurs and self worth and aspirations return. We do this by encouraging (STAR) STOP, TALK, ACT, RE-FOCUS
