After a decade-long military career which included tours in Northern Ireland and Bosnia, Garreth lived with the devastating effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) long after his service ended.
Having overcome his own mental health challenges Garreth has helped over 400 veterans, serving personnel and their families deal with PTSD and find the peace of mind they rightly deserve.
Garreth had one big expedition in his sights before retirement. In December 2022, Garreth assembled a team of Veterans at Ease members to complete the Talisker Atlantic Rowing Challenge; a gruelling 45-day, 3000-mile row across the Atlantic Ocean, raising £139,000.
Garreth will tell us about this Challenge, its highs and lows and the impact completing the crossing had upon him.
