The service delivers specialist, high quality, and effective clinical treatment to veterans who suffer from ongoing psychological issues, resulting from their time as a serving member of the armed forces.
The established staff team has developed expertise in working with military service related psychological difficulties, giving us the right skills and knowledge to work effectively with our service users. Types of psychological difficulties can include trauma related problems; various anxiety based problems; substance misuse; problems with self-management, including anger; depression and problems related to adjusting to civilian life after military service.
They also provide the necessary links to support veterans and their families with housing, financial and social needs. They do this by working in partnership with local Veterans’ agencies, who can offer a range of service users, from increasing social networks, to linking in with other services that may be useful, promoting long-term recovery.
