HELP for Heroes (H4H) Hidden Wounds is a new psychological wellbeing service helping veterans and families to understand and positively manage anxiety, depression and stress.
Confidential support can be accessed nationally over the phone, Skype or face-to-face, delivered by H4H psychological wellbeing practitioners with a knowledge of the unique circumstances of Armed Forces life.
One Army wife whose husband has used the service, which is open to veterans, their families and to relatives of those currently serving, said: “Today I got to the point of packing my bags. My other half has been so narky – the smallest things get to him.
“Then a letter came from Help for Heroes Hidden Wounds. We filled in the form; he was shocked at what I feel he isn’t owning up to. For the first time he has listened and is willing to get help.”
You can contact the H4H Hidden Wounds team 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, by calling 01980 844300, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the website at helpforheroes.org.uk/hidden-wounds
