Hidden Wounds Service

Hidden Wounds Service

If you or a loved one are experiencing difficulties with your mental health, our Hidden Wounds service can provide confidential advice and support.

We offer a clinical assessment to help identify the most appropriate treatment plan, followed by a range of evidence-based psychological therapies tailored to individual needs.

Sessions are run by a qualified psychological wellbeing therapist and include access to self-guided support and one to one and group therapy sessions.

Get Support from Help for Heroes

The 'Am I eligible for support' section on this page can help you answer the question.

Please note this is not an out-of-hours service. For immediate support, we encourage you to contact Combat Stress (0800 138 1619) or Samaritans (Freephone 116 123 ROI 1850 609090)

Service Personnel in need of psychological support should contact your Medical Officer or Unit Welfare Officer, or Help for Heroes to see if we can support you in other ways. Those in need of support for children under 18 or for complex issues, such as PTSD symptoms, can also get in touch and we’ll help you find an organisation that can help.


We work closely with NHS services and other charities, so if we’re unable to support you directly, we will be able to help you access more appropriate services.

We are proud to be a member of Contact*, a collaboration of leading military charities working with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and the NHS to improve access to mental health support for the Armed Forces community. *Contact is a charity partner of Heads Together, a mental health campaign led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
