A 24-hour helpline service has been set up which will cater mental health advice for traumatized soldiers coming home from the Middle-east. It is estimated that about 1 in 4 of those who served in Iraq suffer from some kind of mental health issue. Service personnel of Colchester's troops and veterans can seek advice about post traumatic stress or other mental issues. Families can also call the helpline to speak to people trained in dealing with ex-service men and women.
