U.K. Government boosts help to veterans

The U.K. Government has announced £2m of new funding for the veterans' charity Combat Stress to help improve access to mental-health services for former servicemen. The money will fund up to 15 community psychiatric nurses to work in mental-health trusts alongside specialist Combat Stress teams, allow the Combat Stress helpline to be open 24 hours a day, improve education and training for GPs and help make sure veterans are aware of the services available to them. Combat Stress was set up after the end of World War One and is currently helping over 4,000 veterans. As well as post-traumatic stress disorder the charity also helps veterans suffering with depression, alcohol and drug problems, mood disorders, anxiety and phobias.
