The Veterans’ Mental Health Support Group was founded to give special consideration to the welfare of veterans. Veterans are defined as those who have undertaken at least one days paid service in the Armed Forces of this country, or Merchant Navy personnel who have served in a theatre of war. Veterans will include those who served in the Second World War, did National Service as well as those who have served more recently.

The group has been formed to:-

  • Act as a means of communication between the veteran and those planning and delivering mental health and welfare services
  • Provide a source of information about mental health services in the South Wales Area
  • Represent veterans’ concerns at service provider planning meetings, especially at local authority and University Health Board levels
