I need support

Frontline Families mental health service launched to support Suffolk armed forces community

Launched by Combat2Coffee and Suffolk Mind, the new Frontline Families service is open to serving armed forces personnel, veterans and their loved ones across the county.

Made possible through a grant by The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, it provides free training to help people better understand trauma and how to support those experiencing mental ill health.

Nigel said:

“It is brilliant to partner with Suffolk Mind and extend our reach in ensuring no armed forces personnel and their families, serving or otherwise, are left behind.

“Training courses such as those offered through Frontline Families are vital in educating people about the effects of trauma and how best to manage its symptoms.

“Once again, I am hugely grateful to The Armed Forces Covenant Trust for its ongoing support and making crucial services such as these possible.”

The courses available through Frontline Families are delivered by Suffolk Mind’s training arm, The Mental Health Toolkit

Sessions available include The Essentials and Understanding Trauma

Free online resources available include guides on understanding nightmares and advice on sleep.

Suffolk Mind’s CEO Jon Neal, said:

“Suffolk Mind are delighted to be working with Combat2Coffee in launching this important new service.

“The courses we have made available through Frontline Families are designed to equip serving or former forces personnel and their families with the tools they need to understand trauma and mental health more generally.

“It is incredibly hard for people to put themselves in the shoes of the armed forces and the trauma they may have experienced – so it is imperative we open up support to all those affected.

“I would implore anyone in need of support to get in touch.”
