NHS mental health care for veterans

Mental illness can affect anyone, including ex-members of the Armed Forces.

You may have patients within your practice who have served in the Armed Forces and could be suffering with mental health issues. Veterans often have unique experiences and needs and it’s important to recognise this and refer them to suitable support.

We want to make you aware that within the NHS there are dedicated mental health services for veterans. The NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) can be accessed by contacting the service directly or through a GP referral. Those with complex needs may be referred on to the NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS). Londoners can access the TILS service by calling 020 3317 6818 or emailing

We’d appreciate your help in spreading awareness of these resources to patients.
