We’re delighted to announce that our Hidden Wounds psychological wellbeing service has expanded and is now up and running in Phoenix House, Catterick, following its success at Tedworth House in Wiltshire.
This has made our service even more accessible to Veterans and Armed Forces families, who are now able to receive face to face support at either of these two Recovery Centres, by phone or by Skype.
Hidden Wounds can support veterans of any conflict, their families and the families of those currently serving who are living with excessive worry, stress or low mood. These emotions affect many of us on a day to day basis but when they become dominant for days, weeks or even months at a time, it can be difficult to manage them alone.
The service helps individuals to understand and positively manage these emotions, by giving them a set of skills that can be used in everyday situations to challenge and modify their behaviour in certain situations.
Veterans and family members in need of support are encouraged to take the first step to support by contacting the Hidden Wounds team, weekdays 9am-5pm.
