Veterans’ Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS)

There is a new NHS service for armed forces veterans experiencing severe mental health problems across the North of England – and we are part of it.

The Veterans’ Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS) provides care and treatment for veterans who are in a mental health crisis and need urgent help. It works with local mental health services including us,  that are already treating a veteran, to improve experience and outcomes for them.

In the North of England, the service is being delivered in partnership between the NHS and well-established veterans’ support charities. Together, they work with local mental health services to provide:

·         Support to crisis care services for veterans presenting in a mental health crisis

·         Support during an inpatient unit stay – including access to a clinician advice line 24 hours a day, seven days a week

·         Care navigation – helping veterans and their carers find the local services best suited to their needs, and

·         Support and care for family members and carers where they need it.

The HIS forms part of specialist mental health support for veterans.  If you are a veteran please tell your clinician.
