Military Veterans Service

Some people who have served in the armed forces say they can experience emotional difficulties and find it hard to ask for help.

This may be because of difficult experiences or simply adjusting to civilian life.

Practitioners please log in for further information and referral form.

What we do

We provide mental health support to ex-service personnel for conditions including depression, alcohol and substance misuse, anger problems and post-traumatic stress disorder. 

Our expert team is overseen by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and includes clinical psychologists, specialist psychological wellbeing practitioners and case managers who all understand armed forces culture.

Some of our staff are veterans themselves and others have family members in the forces. Veterans have told us this makes a big difference in giving them confidence that the service can help them.
