Join us at the launch of Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust’s ambitious new High Intensity Service (HIS).


 Please join us for a webinar to officially launch Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust’s ambitious new High Intensity Service (HIS) for all ex-British Armed Forces personnel in need of urgent mental health care and treatment living in London which has been operating since the end of last year.

You can join the virtual event on Microsoft Teams by clicking on this link shortly before 10.30am on Wednesday 20 January.

It will be integrated within, and build on the success of, the established London and South East NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) and the Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS). 

 The HIS will co-ordinate care across providers, securing relevant longer-term support and treatment, and preventing people ‘falling through the gaps’ of multiple services. The HIS will work intensively with veterans for between three and six months until they are back on their feet.

The HIS is a collaboration with Walking With The Wounded, STOLL and The Ripple Pond, three veteran and Forces family-focused charities. 

 The Ripple Pond Director, Rodger Cartwright, said: ‘HIS is an important addition in how this nation cares for its veteran community. The Ripple Pond is proud to be part of this much needed service, providing peer-led one-to-one and group support to many of the families involved.

  ‘Our mission as a charity is to deliver effective peer-led services to carers who are supporting loved ones who have been injured physically or psychologically or have an illness connected with their service in the UK Armed Forces. The carers we support include spouses, partners, parents, grandparents, children, and other family members from both the serving and veteran communities’.
