World Mental Health Day 2021

Sunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day 2021.

A number of studies have found links between active service and mental health issues within armed forces personnel. An important aspect of the ADVANCE Study is looking at the mental health and wellbeing outcomes of our participants in the long term, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and post-traumatic growth, as well as quality of life.

The results from the Study will be used to guide understanding for future conflicts and enable appropriate support to be given to injured servicemen and their families.

Our signposting booklet below is a collection of contact details for services ranging from mental health and physical health to occupational support. Some of the organisations listed are specifically for serving and non-serving personnel.
