In England, veterans access mainstream National Health Service provided mental health services as well as the bespoke veteran specific mental health services that NHS England and NHS Improvement have put in place.
The Transition, Intervention and Liaison service launched in 2017, supports serving personnel who need additional mental health support as they are leaving the Armed Forces and veterans who have mental health issues. There are three elements to the service:
- in-reach services for those in transition, leading up to, and leaving the Armed Forces;
- services for veterans with complex presentation; and
- general services for veterans.
