UK armed forces mental health care delivered in the primary healthcare setting 2013/14 to 2015/16 and AFCS awards for service attributable mental health 6 April 2005 to 31 March 2017

Statistics on UK armed forces personnel assessed with a mental disorder in primary health care and veterans with awards under the AFCS for service-attributable mental disorders.



This ad hoc statistical bulletin provides the number of UK armed forces personnel who were assessed and treated in primary health care for a mental disorder, looking to further understand how many of these were seen solely within primary health care and how many were referred to MOD Department of Community Mental health (DCMH) for specialist mental health treatment.

The bulletin also provides the number of UK armed forces veterans who have made a successful claim for compensation under the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) for service-attributable mental disorders.
