Mental health: Helping Armed Forces Loved Ones (HALO)

  • Worried about the mental health of your armed forces loved one (currently serving or veteran)?
  • Worried about the effect of your loved one's mental health on your own wellbeing?
  • Want to know how to get your loved one to seek help for their mental health?
Many of us are close to someone who is struggling with things and are not quite themselves. The strain on the relationship can sometimes feel like too much to cope with.  If you are the loved one of a veteran or serving person who hasn't reached out for help, particularly if you are worried about the impact of their mental health on your own wellbeing, Help for Heroes is here to offer free and confidential support. .
The service can also support you if you are ex-service personnel, or a family member, who is living with anxiety, low mood , anger or wishing to change your drinking habits.
You can contact the Hidden Wounds team confidentially weekdays 9am – 5pm on 0808 2020144 (free from UK landlines), by email hidden.wounds@helpforheroes.org.uk, or through the contact form:  https://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/hidden-wounds
