The London Education and Training Hub aims to raise awareness of veterans’ mental health issues, support the development of trauma-informed practice and create veteran-sensitive care pathways.
We deliver specialist veteran mental health awareness training sessions to increase veteran identification and improve veteran sensitive practice across statutory and non-statutory services.
The Education and Training Hub has also developed a veterans mental health and e-learning package to support the training of staff across London, in particular NHS staff and staff working within the criminal justice system.
