Serving those who have served
Venue: Leicester Tigers
Date: Monday 9th July 2012
NHS mental health services across the East Midlands are working together with Combat Stress to improve access to services by armed forces' veterans by providing high quality support tailored to an individual's needs, with the aim to make sure that veterans and their families are never far from help by encouraging them to seek help earlier.
