The NHS has launched Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service, the new overarching name for the three NHS veterans mental health services (Veteran’s Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS), Veteran’s Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS) and Veteran’s Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS)). The new name has been developed by veterans and their families and is intended to make the services easier to find and access.
Veterans can self-refer or be referred by their GP, a charity or family or friends to access specialist care through this single route. Further details are available on the NHS website.
More than 13,000 veterans have benefitted from specialist care for problems such as anxiety and depression and almost 2,000 have received help for more complex problems such as PTSD.
The NHS Veterans Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS) for veterans needing urgent help who are in mental health crisis has been trialled in some regions since October 2020. As part of the wider Op COURAGE service offer, it is now being rolled out across the country, with those needing urgent receiving a same day referral. Contact details are available via the above link.
Bold Moves – Bold Moves works with Veterans of the Armed Forces in prison and on Community Orders with the Probation Service or who are leaving custody and living in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire or Hertfordshire.
