Former Lance corporal Chaze Melluish’s medical discharge from the British Army was followed by a series of personal challenges. “Being away from my daughter, homeless and struggling to find a life direction hit hard.
I realise now how much bigger the transition became than I expected and have had to acknowledge areas I need to work at in order to help recovery.” The 37-year-old from Somerset is already experiencing the benefits from his Invictus journey:” The Invictus programme has given me a healthy, positive direction, rather than allow it to swallow me whole!!"
Chaze believes that representing Team UK at the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 will benefit him in numerous aspects of his life. “It will give me a sense of purpose and belonging, build on my passion for sport, re-ignite my ability to challenge myself and boost my self-assurance. Importantly, provide me with the confidence to talk to family about my situation, to push myself out of my comfort zone, be less reserved.”
