Closed petition Fight of Our Lives: Reform mental health support for veterans
We want the Government to:
Offer annual mental health check-ups for three years following discharge
Create a Veterans Mental Health Scheme offering ongoing screening for conditions such as PTSD and a rapid intervention service for Veterans in distress
Require coroners to record Veterans suicide
I served 24 years with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. In 2020 I have lost friends to the hidden epidemic in the Veterans community – Suicide.
Amongst our allies, the UK is one of a few countries that do not record how many veterans die from suicide, hiding the true scale of the problem.
This is the Fight of Our Lives.
Veterans suicide should not be hidden.
Veteran suicide must be discussed and taken seriously. It could mean the difference between life and death.
