20th June, 2:00-3:00pm


In excess of 650,000 veterans and Reservists could be suffering unnecessarily with mental health problems in the UK. Their families are also at increased risk of experiencing issues with their mental health. Data indicates that NHS services alone are currently unable to meet the demand. Charitable organisations are a vital part of the solution and are in a position to compliment and support NHS services with highly specialised and targeted services.

This session will be held partnership with Combat Stress, a veteran mental health charity who are celebrating their 100th birthday this year. The session will look at how we even begin to meet the mental health needs of veterans, focussing on the importance of meaningful collaboration, improving local commissioning and the uptake of digitisation.
