This may include trauma symptoms related to active service. They will see veterans with issues related to bullying or assault within the military. They may see veterans who have difficulties related to RTA’s or work place or training accidents related to their role within the military. They may also see veterans who were unwillingly discharged from the military and find civilian life deeply unsatisfying and have become depressed. They will see non-UK veterans if they served in ‘coalition’ armed forces.
