From 1 April 2023 there will be some changes to NHS ex armed forces mental health and wellbeing services in the North West. Op COURAGE’s three separate services will be brought together into one integrated service - Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service.

All ex armed forces community living in the North of England will be able to access Op COURAGE through a single phone number and email: 0300 373 33 32 or by emailing (available 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week)

A new national campaign is planned to launch in April to raise awareness of Op COURAGE and encourage those personnel leaving service, reservists, veterans and carers, struggling with their mental health to seek help from this service.
