Get involved in Mental Health Awareness Week 2024

The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May), run by the  Mental Health Foundation, is ‘Movement: Moving more for our mental health’ .

Veterans’ charity Launchpad is one of many military charities backing the campaign to  stay active.

Launchpad provides accommodation and targeted support to veterans experiencing homelessness.

The charity also helps with the  transition from military to civilian life. This includes  a range of active pursuits to improve mental health and wellbeing such as fishing, clay pigeon shooting and ten pin bowling.

Some of the activities have been funded through the government’s Op FORTITUDE programme, which aims to reduce veterans’ homelessness and Launchpad is one of nine funded organisations to help deliver the programme for the government.
