Girlfriend of soldier calls for more help to combat stress
Speaking to the BBC, Miss Roach said that he had faced a "constant battle" after being shot twice and losing two close friends in Afghanistan and she wants more help for charities helping soldiers. 

The cause of death is presently unexplained and an inquest was opened and adjourned on Wednesday. She said that the Army was "brilliant" with the support it gave to L/Sgt Collins, and he received regular counselling.  However, she added, he was deeply troubled and found it difficult to talk openly to his family about his experiences.

Are you or do you know of a friend or loved one that is struggling to cope from psychological trauma as a result of combat experiences? There are many service charities ready to offer support.  Combat Stress is the UK's leading military charity specialising in the care of veterans' mental health. Others such as British Legions and Help for Heroes are also available to you.
