Recent events in Afghanistan may have an impact upon patients who have links with the country, including members of the Armed Forces community, veterans, their families or those with close family ties to the country. It is possible that mental health issues including PTSD, depression and the use of recreational drugs may increase with consequences both upon themselves and those around them.

Op COURAGE is an NHS mental health specialist service designed to help serving personnel due to leave the military, reservists, armed forces veterans and their families.

Please see the updated Op COURAGE services map leaflet.
