Military Mental Health Helpline 0800 323 4444

The Ministry of Defence has launched the 24/7 Military Mental Health Helpline.  The new number - 0800 323 4444 - is open now and targeted at serving personnel and their families, allowing them to access the help, advice and support they need anywhere, anytime.

Combat Stress - the leading veterans mental health charity - has been commissioned to run the new helpline service for serving troops and their families 24 hours a day.  The new line is backed up by a deeper partnership between the MOD and the charity and run by a team of specially-trained professionals. 

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) will also provide additional funds to enhance Combat Stress’ existing service predominantly aimed at veterans - 0800 138 1619.

For further information about the new helpline see:

JSHAO Housing Briefs

The MoD provides civilian housing information to members of the Armed Forces via the Joint Service Housing Advice Office (JSHAO).  JSHAO is the MOD’s tri-service focal point providing Service personnel and their family members with pertinent information for those considering civilian accommodation at any time in their career, and for those during resettlement to assist with the transition to civilian life.  The bulk of this information is via a 2-2½ hr presentation with 1-1 consults available.

An Independent Financial Mortgage Adviser who is a member of SIIAP (Services Insurance and Investment Advisory Panel) which is recognised by the MOD as supporting the Armed Forces (refer 2013DIN01-218), accompanies JSHAO at the briefings.

Each JSHAO briefing is notified on all HIVE blogs regardless of location to ensure maximum coverage to the Service community.
