Introducing the Armed Forces Network

The Armed Forces Network is a new network that provides information about free at the point of access mental health services for ex-military personnel across Kent and Medway. The network brings together volunteers and professionals to ensure ex-military personnel who are suffering from anxiety and depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can access and receive appropriate help.

The network is inclusive and ensures it provides opportunities for therapists to aspire to develop their expertise to provide services to the highest level and in keeping with NICE guidelines for treatment of anxiety and depression, and PTSD.

Forces Champions are individuals and organisations that signpost and promote local mental health services available to ex-military personnel.

Forces Therapists can join the network to benefit from close contact with other agencies involved in metal heath care for ex-services personnel. Therapists from a range of professions associated with mental health, and working with a broad range of anxiety and depression related issues from across all primary and secondary care psychological services (IAPT) providers and drug and alcohol services will develop their ability to triage referrals of ex-military personnel, offering support and signposting to other agencies as appropriate.   

Forces Trauma Therapists are therapists accredited in a core mental health profession, trained in EMDR and/or CBT and have evidence of significant supervised experience in working with patients with complex multiple incident PTSD from across all primary and secondary care psychological services (IAPT) providers.
