Wiltshire-based military mental health charity, Stand Down, will be joining other influential charities for the first time at a Forces Charity Signposting Event in Calne on Wednesday 8 June.
The open day will take place from 10am to 5pm at Calne Town Hall (SN11 0EN) and will be a great opportunity for Armed Forces personnel to find out exactly what military charities can provide by way of support.
Representatives from Stand Down – which delivers free and confidential online counselling to serving personnel, veterans and their families – will be present to offer advice to those seeking psychological help in the local community and surrounding areas.
They will be joining forces with several other military charities, including the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes and SSAFA, as well as Wiltshire Council and Citizens Advice.
Kyna Jeng, CEO of Stand Down, comments: “Sometimes it can be very overwhelming for military personnel and their families to know what support is available to them, so this event is a great opening for those who want to find out more. We are thankful to the Community Hub for asking us to attend and hope we can raise awareness of Stand Down’s immediate and accessible mental health support, and help explain the benefits of early intervention.”
The event is free of charge and the general public are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available.
