Follow the challenging journeys of rehabilitation and recovery taken by soldiers who have suffered life-changing mental or physical injuries.

For soldiers who have suffered a life-changing injury, or are affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the road to recovery is long, hard and often paved with setbacks.

This exhibition explores the challenges soldiers face, the help they receive and the resilience they need to continue on their path.

Find out about the many people, with their different specialisms, whose support is essential to the rehabilitation of each veteran. 

Discover how the work of charities complements the role of healthcare professionals. 

And see how soldiers re-integrate in society: the family and social support networks they return to, the injuries they learn to live with, the career choices they face, as well as the new - and sometimes exciting - opportunities they encounter.  

Personal case studies will highlight individual experiences and demonstrate how each road to recovery is unique.
