Families of serving RAF personnel and veterans who are finding life tough will be offered unique training to help them identify, and deal with, the symptoms of poor mental wellbeing
The Royal Air Forces Association, the charity that supports the welfare of the RAF family, is offering mental wellbeing awareness training at locations across the UK.
The initiative, named Finding It Tough?, launches on Blue Monday (20 January). It is open to all RAF veterans and their families, plus partners, parents, siblings and children (over 18) of anyone serving in the RAF, as well as anyone working on an RAF station (e.g. MOD civil servants and defence contractors).
The specially designed training aims to equip people to be more resilient to life’s pressures. It will also help people to offer support to others struggling with mental wellbeing issues, and to signpost them to organisations that may be able to help.
