Making a veterans mental health referral (OpCourage)

If you’ve served in the UK armed forces, even if only one day, we can help you access our NHS veteran’s mental health and wellbeing service.

Our support is available to all ex-service personnel, regardless of your rank or number of years of service, including reservists who are not currently mobilised.

Visit our NHS OpCOURAGE Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing service page (opens new browser tab)

How to refer

You can ask your GP, health or care professional  or someone from a military health charity to refer you to our service.

You can also refer yourself directly or ask a family member to refer you.

To make a referral, save a copy of the form and complete it. When you're ready, email it to us.
