LIFE with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is no piece of cake.
But, it's all it will take to help support veteran's mental health at the Tamworth RSL Sub-Branch fundraiser.
Country Women's Association ladies have cranked up their ovens to bake 200 patty cakes, all proceeds help support veterans, Tamworth RSL Sub-Branch secretary Vonny Taynton said.
"I guess the underlying factor is that a lot of them are injured while they're in service in the military and young and bullet proof," she said.
"When they get older - they don't even have to be old, those injuries resurface and are compounded by not being tended to."
And it's not just physical health that's an issue, veterans suffer from PTSD in overwhelming numbers.
In WWI and WWII, families were told not to speak to veterans about their war service because it was believed it was better for them to get over it, Ms Taynton said.
"Vietnam veterans were treated badly when they returned, excluded from RSL, spat on in the street - it was like being in another conflict and that would have been difficult to deal with," she said.
"They basically rebuild people so that they can be a resource for the Australian Defence Force, so when they go back into civilian life they have to rebuild themselves and that can be a challenge."
The fundraiser is outside the Post Office on Saturday from 10am to 2pm, patty cakes are $2.50 with proceeds going to support veteran's health.
