Ministry of Defence defends mental health support

Our thoughts are with the family of Lance Sergeant Dan Collins at this difficult time... The mental health of service personnel is a top priority and we have robust systems in place to identify and treat those with mental health issues including when deployed on operations.

The MoD’s experienced mental health professionals deliver high quality treatment at the Departments of Community Mental Health both in the UK and overseas. MoD has, however, robust procedures in place to address any concerns expressed by service persons as to the standard of care they receive.
