Troops' mental health helpline launched
A 24-hour phone helpline for armed forces personnel with mental health problems is due to be launched by the government.
It is intended to help serving personnel, veterans and their families.
The helpline will be run by mental health charity Rethink – with the help of veterans’ group Combat Stress, which will guide and train staff.
The government is funding a one-year pilot costing £200,000, with text and e-mail help available later this year.
