Following the successful launch of the Joining Forces mental health awareness app for serving military personnel, a similar app is now available for veterans.

The Veterans Mental Heath app includes help and guidance on key mental conditions, much like the Joining Forces app. It also features videos of veterans telling their own stories.

Armed forces personnel and veterans can download the apps for free on Apple or Android devices to receive guidance and identify with those in similar situations.

The Ministry of Defence is committed to providing access to mental health services to members of the armed forces, their families and veterans.

This includes access to the Combat Stress 24-hour helpline, e-learning packages for GPs, and the Big White Wall, an online service providing help 24/7.
