Emotional support needs of Service families
Supported by The Royal British Legion and the veteran's mental health charity Combat Stress, the Centre for Mental Health report Unsung Heroes, has found that Armed Forces families must be better supported to deal with the emotional and psychological impact of deployment.
It also calls for urgent research into alcohol misuse, domestic violence and the impact of mental health problems on the partners and children of Service personnel and veterans.
The report argues that while progress is being made to address the psychological needs of Service personnel and veterans themselves, the practical and emotional impact on their partners and children must also be taken into consideration.
