MP’s Anger at Forces Failed on Mental Health

Danielle Rowley MP has spoken of her anger that some serving personnel, veterans and their families that need mental health care are being “completely failed by the system”.

Ms. Rowley quoted a recent defence committee report, and the fact that local charity the Lothians Veterans Centre endorsed the sentiment of the report.

Danielle Rowley MP said:

“It is unacceptable that our forces and their families are being failed by the system with regard to their mental health care.

“I will continue to hold the UK Government to account on this.

“My thanks to the Lothians Veterans Centre, a fantastic resource for providing information, advice and support to veterans right here in Midlothian.”
