Support for Veterans

Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust provide a range of mental health services to children, adults and older people across Dudley and Walsall. Our services span primary care and psychological therapies for common mental health problems through to the treatment and care of people detained under the Mental Health Act and those with severe and enduring mental health mental health conditions.

We offer a number of services for people who are struggling with their emotions as a result of their experiences. Where possible, we will try to prioritise people who we are aware have been in the armed forces, it is therefore important that people tell referrers that they are a veteran.

What to do if you are experiencing a mental health problem

In the first instance speak to your GP and they will be able to refer you to our services.

If you are have a common mental health problem such as feeling low, stressed or anxious, do not have a serious and enduring mental health condition, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or personality disorder, and do not require urgent care, our Talking Therapies Services may be able to help you.

Depending on your needs, we can provide a range of talking therapy treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing, guided self-help, computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (cCBT) and our series of weekly wellbeing courses.
