So, why did we do it?

We’re committed to helping Veterans and Armed Forces families who are living with the hidden wounds of service reach out for support so they don’t go on suffering in silence unnecessarily. We recently created a psychological wellbeing service that supports all those struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, anger and alcohol – and helps those in need of more specialist support to find it.

Our aim was to make this service as accessible as possible, so our free and confidential support is available by phone, Skype and face to face. It couldn’t be easier to get in touch with the team, simply call or email Hidden Wounds for an informal chat about we how we can help you access the tools you need to help yourself.

Take the first step today: “Life is for living so pick the phone up. You only get one chance at it so make sure every day is the best possible."
