Veterans: NHS Mental Health Service Provision

Mental illness is common and can affect anyone, including serving and ex-members of the armed forces and their families. They may also delay seeking help for a number of reasons, such as thinking that they can cope, fear of criticism, or feeling that NHS therapists won't understand. Furthermore, the culture of the armed forces can make seeking help for a mental health problem appear difficult. Some people may not experience some of these symptoms until years after leaving the armed forces.

However some people need clinical care and treatment, which could be from the NHS, support groups or charities.

NHS Veterans' Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) have publish an information leaflet about the services they provide and how veterans access the service.
