No names no pack drill


A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one single day. Unlike the United States where it is only if you have been in combat are you classed as a veteran. This group is where we as individuals with the common bond of having served Queen and Country regardless of being a Skate, Crab, Bootie or Squaddie, can get together and assist each other on our own personal journeys regardless of having or not having mental health issues.

We will explore ways to ensure:

  • Good sleep hygiene
  • Controlling emotions
  • Safe and appropriate disclosure
  • Dealing with stress
  • Exploring ways and means to maintain personal wellbeing 
  • Where and how to gain the help that is needed
  • Plus many other things that veterans can bring up

Wives Husbands Partners are more than welcome.

There is no rank or social structure in this group as what makes us unique is not the fact rank or social standing was achieved but that we served (check the poster have stayed away from the traditional listing of our beloved armed forces)
This is a free non therapy group no hidden agendas no flashy cars no OiC no bull or blanco.
