VETERANS

Too often veterans, of all ages, go unsupported when they leave military service. It is not uncommon for veterans to struggle with their mental health, with many experiencing symptoms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) among other mental health conditions. If you, or anyone you know, is a veteran and needs support, this guide includes an in-depth list of resources around mental health, housing, and financial support for British veterans.

For US veterans requiring support for substance abuse, please visit Ridgefield Recovery for a list of resources and helplines, as well as access to information regarding available treatments and support.
