Mental health training helps personnel be best version of themselves, Veterans Minister says

Leo Docherty has visited the Army Training Centre in Pirbright to mark the start of mental health awareness week.

Mental resilience training, given to instructors across the Army, has been scrutinised by the Minister for Defence People and Veterans.

Leo Docherty visited the Army Training Centre in Pirbright at the start of Mental Health Awareness Week and praised the resilience training given to instructors across the Army.

Mr Docherty said the skills being taught are setting recruits up to succeed in their military career and life afterwards.

"It's good to see that we now have a formal way of working mental resilience into the curriculum to give people, and the staff, the tools really to ensure that people actually can be the best version of themselves," he said.
