Special issue on Veterans Mental Health

The Journal of Public Mental Health is proud to announce a Special Issue (March 2017) on Veterans' Mental Health.


In the UK, the "Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly."


The Government are working with multiple organisations to support the forces through services, policy and projects. Mental health problems following military service were once seen as invisible disabilities, but now efforts are growing to identify, understand and address mental illness among ex-service personnel.


As well as the UK, the USA and the European members of NATO have come to see Veterans' health as a public health priority. The Special Issue combines an International range of perspectives, including the views of Veterans.
We aim for 2017 to be a turning point in fairly-based policies and evidence-based practice.
