Military Veterans Support Service

Are you a military veteran

The NHS provides dedicated mental health services for those who have served in the British Armed Forces - the Veterans Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) and the Veterans Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS).

Available across England both services are provided by specialists in mental health who have an expert understanding of the Armed Forces.  The TILS is a dedicated outpatient service for serving personnel approaching discharge from the Armed Forces and Veterans who are experiencing mental health difficulties.  The CTS is an enhanced outpatient service for ex-forces who have military related complex mental health difficulties that have not improved with previous treatment.

Access to both of these services is through the TILS. Individuals can contact the service direct or ask to be referred via your GP or military charity.
