Mental health support to help you during COVID-19

Welcome to our online self-help resources

Our clinical team are here to help during COVID-19

With the outbreak of COVID-19, we are all facing really unusual and restrictive government measures that are intended to keep us, our families and our communities safe. It is vital that we adhere to these measures and in doing so, limit the spread of the disease and ensure that the NHS have the capacity to care for those who fall dangerously ill.

Impact of COVID-19
on our mental health

While these measures do protect us from the spread of the disease, it's important that we're aware of the potential impact that social distancing, social isolation and working from home may have on our mental health.

It's completely normal to experience a range of emotions right now. You may find yourself feeling low in mood, anxious, sad, confused and even angry – these are normal human responses to these uncertain and confusing times. Rest assured you share these feelings with the majority of the planet currently. Combat Stress want the veteran community to know that we're here for you.

Our skilled and experienced clinicians and our veteran representatives have been working hard to develop the following resources, which are aimed at keeping you in good mental and physical shape until the lockdown is lifted.

Over the coming weeks we'll be linking to a series of videos and resources with helpful advice, information and strategies to help get you through. We also hope to begin online therapies and online group programmes very soon, so do keep checking our website for updates.

Our helpline is also available on 0800 138 1619 

We are proud to support Combat Stress and this initiative which will help to provide a vital lifeline for veterans. Thank you to the Combat Stress team for the great work you do.
