Veteran's Complex Therapy

Veteran's Complex Therapy Service

What it is:

This is a new contract that we are delivering at Better Pathways, working with the CTS team at Queen Elizabeth hospital, to support veterans stabilise their lives.

This is an enhanced service for Veterans who have complex mental ill-health, many of whom will have experienced trauma, which has not been resolved earlier in the care/support pathway.

Whilst the majority of veterans make a successful transition to civillian life, a small proportion experience mental health problems.  Within this group are those who require intensive treatment programmes and improvement in their health and wellbeing.

Common mental health problems for veterans include:

  • Alcohol misuse

  • Anxiety/ panic disorders

  • Depressive disorders

  • Personality disorders

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

  • Substance misuse
