Mental health chiefs to launch expanded service for war veterans

    Published: 13 October, 2016

    MENTAL health chiefs are launching a new, expanded service for “war veterans” on ­Monday in the St Pancras Conference Centre. 

    The London Veterans’ Service, funded by the NHS, will work with Camden and Islington Foundation Trust to ­support veterans – in custody and in the community – to improve their mental health and “get their life back on track”.

    Many ex-servicemen suffer from post traumatic stress disorders and have problems with alcohol or drugs as a result of their experiences fighting in wars. The service is open to all ex-serving members of the UK Armed Forces living in, or who are registered with a GP in, London.
