Sean Duggan: NHS England's new support for mental health of veterans can make a big difference

Sean Duggan

Responding to NHS England's announcement of a new mental health service for ex-armed forces veterans and service personnel who are approaching discharge, Mental Health Network Chief Executive Sean Duggan said:

“It is vital that mainstream mental health services are 100 per cent accessible to veterans, as this can make a huge difference to their quality of life.

“The funding from NHS England is very welcome, as are the benefits of teaming up with other organisations – in this case the MoD – to better understand how we can help people suffering from mental health issues.”
