New support group for partners and carers of veterans with mental health difficulties

Posted on: December 20th, 2013 by Sue Strongman No Comments

AWP’s South West Veterans’ Mental Health Service is setting up a new support group for the partners and families of military veterans who are experiencing a mental health problem. An initial session has been arranged for

Monday 13th January 2014 in Swindon, from 10am – 12 noon at Sandalwood Court (postcode SN3 4WF).

If you are a partner or family member of a veteran and would like some support for yourself then please come along and help us to plan future groups. The session will be informal and friendly and there might even be cake!

If you can’t make the meeting we’d really like to hear your thoughts about the kind of support that would be helpful. Please do contact Sarah Mills from the SW Veterans’ Service to discuss the group on 0300 555 0112 or by email sarah.mills10@nhs.net.

Future groups in Bristol and other areas covered by the SW Veterans Service may also be planned if there is sufficient interest.
