NHS England has launched a mental health service to support and treat ex-armed forces veterans and service personnel who are approaching discharge. The newly commissioned £9million service – known as the NHS transition, intervention and liaison (TIL) veterans' mental health service – will give access to a range of mental health services across the health and care system for 17,500 people during the next three years.
Veterans and service personnel approaching discharge can either self-refer or request referral via their GP or mental health provider, or through a military charity such as Combat Stress, the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes and SSAFA.
An initial face-to-face assessment will be offered within a fortnight and, where appropriate, a clinical appointment two weeks later. To get in contact with the service in Devon, people can:
call 0300 365 0300 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterans' Gateway is a group of organisations and armed forces charities which is often the first point of contact for veterans seeking support.Information on how to access the service can be found here.
