The Ministry of Defence works with a range of partners to ensure that serving personnel and veterans receive the mental health support they need. Last year we published a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy setting out measures to further improve the mental health of the Armed Forces. Earlier this year we commissioned a new 24/7 Mental Health Helpline for serving personnel and their families from Combat Stress, linking into its existing service for veterans.
