Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service

After serving in the Armed Forces, some people find it hard to adjust to civvy street. If you’re struggling with your mental health and wellbeing, Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service can help you. Available across England, it has helped almost 30,000 people since 2017. It works in partnership with Armed Forces charities and NHS services, and provides specialist care, support and treatment for those due to leave the military, reservists and those who have served.

Op COURAGE is an NHS service developed with people who’ve served in the Armed Forces and experienced mental ill-health. Each member of staff within the service is either from the Armed Forces or has experience of working with the military community.

The service provides a range of specialist support and treatment, depending on the needs of the individual. This might include helping you to recognise and treat early signs of mental ill health, as well as providing care and support for more advanced mental health conditions and psychological trauma. The service also provides support and treatment for a range of addictions, such as alcohol and drug misuse and gambling, and can refer you to other NHS services if needed.

You can contact Op COURAGE directly to make an appointment or ask someone to refer on your behalf, or you can ask your GP to refer you, but you don’t have to go through your GP to get an appointment.
