Mental health care for veterans

Mental illness is common and can affect anyone, including serving and ex-members of the armed forces and their families. While some people cope by getting support from their family and friends, or by getting help with other issues in their lives, others need clinical care and treatment, which could be from the NHS, support groups or charities.

NHS England has published a leaflet giving information on mental health services available for veterans, which can be downloaded here.

More information is available on NHS Choices here.
