Where to get help

It is normal to experience upsetting and confusing thoughts after a traumatic event, but in most people these will improve naturally over a few weeks.

You should visit your GP if you or your child are still having problems about four weeks after the traumatic experience, or if the symptoms are particularly troublesome.



Additionally, the Samaritans are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you need a response immediately, it’s best to call them on the phone: 116 123

The team from mind.org.uk provide information on a range of topics including: types of mental health problems, where to get help and medication and alternative treatments

They will look for details of help and support in your own area. The lines are open 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday (except for bank holidays): 0300 123 3393

The MAP was established in July 1993 to examine UK Gulf veterans who were concerned that their physical health had been adversely affected by service in the 1990/1991 Gulf Conflict (Operation GRANBY). In recent years the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has extended the service to other groups of veterans including Porton Down Volunteers (PDV) and veterans of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and in 2007 the service began offering mental health assessments for veterans who believed their mental health may have suffered as a consequence of operational military service since 1982 and was not fully understood within the NHS.

Some GPs and other Health Professionals may have difficulty understanding the needs of veterans who believe they are ill as a result of operational service. Doctors are encouraged to refer to the MAP any patients who are concerned that their health may have suffered as a result of their Service and who fulfil the criteria for being seen. This will allow the patient to have a thorough assessment by a doctor with considerable knowledge of veterans’
illnesses issues. Satisfaction surveys indicate that the service provided by the Programme is well regarded by patients.

This utilised approved interventions to assist in the assessment and treatment of emotional and behavioural reactions, such as severe depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-injurious behaviours, violent behaviours etc, to traumaticincidents. These reactions have led to service users needing detention for their own safety or the safety of others. The care pathway is designed to support individuals on their road to recovery and is approved by the Care Quality Commission.
