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 highly experienced mental health professionals deliver high quality treatment at the Department 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. Due to patient confidentiality, it is not appropriate to comment on individual cases.
