Calling all military veterans


Calling all military veterans

Are you a military veteran who can spare a few minutes to complete a short survey about the need for setting up a veteran peer mentor service in Northamptonshire?

Peer mentors are people who have experience of a significant life event, developed skills to help them cope, adjust and be in recovery and are willing to share this knowledge with others who are less experienced.

Veterans, through their shared military experience are recognised as being a valuable resource in supporting other veterans to seek support in areas such as mental health and substance misuse. Through offering informal support, they can inspire and motivate others to seek help and begin their own recovery journey.

Simple things like taking a veteran to their first treatment appointment can make a real difference to their willingness to engage with services and remain in treatment.

An important part of the planning process is to consult with veterans to assess the need for this type of service and to get feedback on the proposal. If you can spare a few minutes, please complete the survey by clicking on the link below:
