Veteran Families Recovery College

All of our Veteran team have either served in the Armed Forces or are professional Mental Health and addiction support staff

 

Veterans Mental Health support for North East veterans and their families. It should be obvious that working in a uniformed service can bring danger and stress. Every day our uniformed services work long hours in sometimes very dangerous conditions. They keep us all safe, but sometimes this can come at a personal cost.

It’s an unfortunate reality that these people can, and often do get hurt physically and mentally. It can be the same for veterans of all of the services. A soldier out on the front line, witnessing horrors that many of us could probably never imagine.

These can lead to PTSD, depression, phobias, anxiety, relationship problems, drinking and drugs.

Anxious Minds understands that wounds sustained in the service of your duties are not always physical and can affect anyone,  Our founder was diagnosed with clinical depression, chronic anxiety and PTSD, after he left the Armed Forces on completion of 22 years of service and struggled to find support.  We understand that the real battle for those affected in service can often begin at home. We are able to offer confidential support to those suffering from anxiety and depression, safe in the knowledge that they will be looked after and supported when needed.

It is crucial to understand that, no matter how much of a grip your anxiety or depression has on you at the moment, it CAN be removed or managed with the right support, together we can beat anxiety and depression. If you are a veteran of any of the services, then just give us a call.

Award-Winning Veteran Mental Health Project

Supporting Veteran Families in Crisis

In 2020 we received two years of funding to support veteran families with a target of 80. Within weeks of the project starting we had over 60 families, two years on and we have supported over 200 veteran families, winning us the Soldiering on award 2021 for (health and rehabilitation) and the  GHP Mental Health Awards 2022, (Best Veteran Focused Mental Health Service – North East England).

We will be building on this hard work and are delighted to announce the opening of the Anxious Minds Veteran Recovery College. The centre will provide early intervention and long-term support for veterans and their families struggling with complex needs opening in March 2022 in Wallsend Memorial Hall
