Defence Minister outlines expanded mental health provision for Armed Forces and veterans

Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood has outlined the MOD's increased support for serving personnel and veterans.


Speaking at a conference on mental health at King’s College London yesterday, Mr Ellwood also debunked several myths around veterans, saying that ex-forces personnel are not mad, bad and sad, but make a vital contribution to society.


The MOD recently increased funding for mental health provision for military personnel by £20 million over the next ten years.


A new helpline for service personnel has also been established. The new number - 0800 323 4444 is backed up by a major internal communications campaign on mental fitness across the services.
