The ongoing events in Afghanistan are difficult and distressing. The impact can be even greater for anyone who served or supported military operations. Please remember that there is help available if veterans or their families need it. It is more important than ever to spread the word about how to access specialist support for mental health and wellbeing.
Anyone in the UK or overseas can also contact the Veterans’ Gateway website or helpline on 0808 802 1212 for around the clock advice and signposting to further support across the charity sector, including for families and the bereaved.
In the case of an emergency or crisis, please contact the Samaritans for free on 116 123.
