Combat Stress works with Veterans of the British Armed Forces, and members of the Reserve Forces, through effective treatment and support for mental health problems.
Forward Assist Veteran Support Charity provides advice, information and guidance, ‘life changing’ projects and opportunities to former servicemen and women who are experiencing difficulties in adjusting to a new life as a civilian. Forward Assist’s programmes are particularly relevant for former servicemen and women who are experiencing homelessness or housing problems, are incarcerated in Prison or have involvement with the Criminal Justice System.
Held at the John Willie Sams Centre in Dudley, Forward Assist offers a programme of events for local residents and veterans, including drop-in sessions, Cook2Give sessions and more.
The Veterans’ Wellbeing Assessment and Liaison Service (VWALS) is a new mental health and wellbeing service to support veterans and their families in the north east. For the very first time, it will provide a single point of access to the range of mental health support services which already exist across the region, making it much easier to get signposted to the right help and support.
