star this property answer text <p>Operation Herrick finished in 2014, so many veterans of the campaign will still be serving. All Armed Forces personnel are supported by dedicated and comprehensive medical services, including mental health support. Current Service personnel are provided with pre- and post-operational stress management training, psychiatric and psychological treatments, and initiatives such as Trauma Risk Incident Management (TRiM - peer to peer support after a traumatic incident). The Ministry of Defence announced in October 2017 a new partnership with the Royal Foundation which will provide resources for training and education for the Armed Forces Community around good Mental Fitness.</p><p> </p><p>Further measures introduced to support Armed Forces personnel include a new 24-hour mental health helpline targeted at serving personnel and their families allowing them to access support for any mental health problems anytime, anywhere.</p><p> </p><p>For those who took part in Operation Herrick, but have left Service, the NHS in England and the Devolved Administrations are responsible for healthcare, including mental healthcare, for veterans. Veterans’ health is broadly aligned with that of the rest of the general population and most veterans’ health requirements are sufficiently met by existing NHS provision. However, several tailored initiatives are already in place to cater for specific veteran needs, including priority access to NHS secondary care in England, Scotland and Wales for Service related conditions, subject to the clinical need of all patients.</p><p> </p><p>Further measures to improve support to veterans include the recently announced Veterans Strategy: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategy-for-our-veterans" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategy-for-our-veterans</a>. By 2028 we will be doing more to ensure that each veteran is valued, contributing and supported. One of our aims is that all veterans enjoy a state of positive physical and mental health and wellbeing, enabling them to contribute to wider aspects of society. In order to achieve this outcome, we will focus our efforts on enabling consistency of medical outcomes for veterans, through a smooth transition of provision from in-Service to post-Service and sharing effective practices amongst clinical and healthcare communities; and providing bespoke treatment for those veterans who have specific health needs because of their service.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the welfare of Service personnel and veterans very seriously. As in society as a whole, the Armed Forces will never be able to eradicate the incidence of suicide, however we are not complacent; any suicide is one too many and a tragedy for the individual.</p><p> </p><p>As at 1 February 2018, there have been 29 coroner-confirmed suicide and open verdict deaths to UK Army Service personnel, whilst serving, who had previously deployed to Operation HERRICK (Afghanistan). In addition, there were three coroner-confirmed suicide and open verdict deaths to UK Army Service personnel whilst deployed on Operation HERRICK.</p><p> </p><p>Suicide data for veterans of the UK Armed Forces is not currently captured by the Ministry of Defence (MOD). However, the MOD has commissioned a new study to investigate causes of death, including suicide, amongst all those who served in the UK Armed Forces between 2001 and 2014, covering combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This will include Army personnel who are still in service, and Army personnel who have now transitioned into civilian life.</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-study-into-iraq-and-afghanistan-veterans-launched" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-study-into-iraq-and-afghanistan-veterans-launched</a></p><p> </p><p>Every study conducted by the MOD has found that the risk of suicide amongst the Armed Forces community is lower than amongst the general population. The UK Regular Armed Forces male rate of suicide for 2017 was 8 per 100,000. In contrast, the UK general population male rate in 2016 was 19 per 100,000. The UK Regular Armed Forces have seen a declining trend in male suicide rates since the 1990s. Suicide remains a rare event, evidenced by the small number of deaths in each year.</p><p> </p>
