Improving your mental health

Why does my mental health matter?


Many of us can struggle with anger, anxiety, depression and stress throughout our lives. However, when it feels overwhelming and it’s not addressed, it could not only affect your own life but the lives of your loved ones too.

 

What can Help for Heroes do to help me?


If you are struggling with your mental health, our Psychological Wellbeing team is here to listen and help. Some of the free and confidential services we offer include:

  • Hidden Wounds Psychological Wellbeing service for Veterans and family members, nationally accessible by phone, Skype or face to face

  • Members of our Psychological Wellbeing Team on site at all of our Recovery Centres.

  • Psycho-educational courses for Veterans and families.

  • Mental health support on Help for Heroes activities and events


Collaboration
We work closely with, and in some cases fund, mental health services provided by organisations such as Combat Stress and the NHS, so if we can’t support you directly we’ll help you access the support that’s right for you.

Help for Heroes is proud to be a member of Contact, a collaboration of leading military charities working with the MOD and NHS to improve access for the Armed Forces Community to mental health support. Contact is a charity partner of Heads Together, a mental health campaign led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry
