Stories from Veterans
Pennine Care Military Veterans Services undertook work with the charities Walking with the Wounded and Veterans in Communities and Inspiration NW Ltd to understand more about the barriers veterans face in accessing mental health services. The Institute of Community Reporters ran a number of Community Reporter Insight programmes with 6 veterans to understand there perspective. They then went out to collect another 40 veterans stories. We also undertook interviews with clinicians to see there perspective. This lead to a conversations of change event where both films were shown and discussed. As a result a number of new ways of working and how the system could be improved were looked at. Find out more about the project here. This is an example of our 360 degree approach to looking at issues.
