Former defence secretary Liam Fox says we are currently failing to honour the military covenant when it comes to mental health care.

Since coming to power, though, the government has put in place a number of initiatives and services to help soldiers and veterans with mental health issues:

MoD Welfare Support

MoD Mental Health and Wellbeing

Government's 'Big White Wall' initiative

Government's 'Fighting Fit' report

The following charities also work to address the issue:

Combat Stress

British Legion

SSAFA Forces Help

Healing the Wounds
