Dr Neil Kitchiner will shed light on the realities of war at a talk in Penarth.

Mental health expert, Dr Neil Kitchiner, will discuss his experiences as an Army Reservist during a talk and Q&A session at Penarth Pier Pavilion. Drawing on his service in Afghanistan, Kitchiner will utilise his own diary notes, photographs and videos to offer an insight into the conflicts that are leaving a lasting impression on our servicemen and women.

Fundraising and sponsorship manager, Alice Turner, explained, “The Pavilion takes a keen interest in supporting veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Neil has seen first-hand what people have to deal with during conflict so offers an informed and empathetic approach.”

The Journey to Afghanistan and Back takes place on 30 November.
