Healthwatch animation highlights good practice in working with veterans to understand mental health needs

A new animation has been produced by Healthwatch Norfolk, which showcases how it involved veterans in the development of mental health services across Norfolk and Suffolk.

It aims to encourage other organisations to work with veterans to better understand their health needs. The animation highlights some of the challenges local veterans experience in getting the right care for their mental health conditions. It tells the story of how Healthwatch Norfolk worked with partners to engage veterans so that local health services could be improved.

The film was funded by an NHS England celebrating participation in healthcare grant.
