This module is part two of a two-part
series on the armed forces and mental health. The
modules provide useful background information to those who may
deliver mental health support to serving or veteran personnel.
Veterans may present to mental health
professionals working in most areas of the NHS. It is
therefore important that professionals seeing them are aware
of the particular difficulties they may experience, and of the
specialist services available to assist them.
This module will provide useful
background information to those who may deliver mental health
support to military veterans. We will cover the
epidemiology of mental disorder in service personnel and explain
the challenges associated with working in war zones and returning
to society as a veteran. We will also provide a thorough overview
of the various mental health support processes that the NHS,
Ministry of Defence (MoD) and third sector have established to
help military veterans and their families.
