Servicemen and women living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are rebuilding their lives with a new therapy. More than 100 people are enrolled with the Hampshire charity Models for Heroes that runs classes in how to make intricate scale models of a variety of military, civilian and science fiction aircraft and vehicles. The charity relies on donations from modellers who’ve got a surplus of unmade kits, known as their “stash”. The therapy works by concentrating the mind on one small, detailed task that allows it to focus and then relax.
