Are you – or someone you know – struggling with your mental health?
See below for more information about what we offer, or simply get in touch via the VOS office.
Come to one of our monthly Drop-Ins to be seen by one of our delivery partners, where they can carry out an initial assessment of your needs.
If you are unable to attend one of our Drop-Ins please do contact us and we will arrange a suitable time to speak with you. Please note we are not a crisis mental health service and if you need more urgent support please contact one of the following:
- Your GP
- Attend A&E or call 999 for medical emergencies
- New Veterans NHS High Intensity Service: call 111 and notify the operator that you are a veteran and you will be directed towards the most appropriate help. Family members can call on behalf of the veteran. The service is run by the NHS, Ambulance, Walking With the Wounded, and All Call Signs.
- The Samaritans on 116 123 (24 hours a day, 365 days a year).
