Remembrance Day 2020

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in News on 11th November, 2020

Remembrance Day takes place on Wednesday 11 November and is an annual day of commemoration and celebration to honour members of the our Armed Forces who lost their lives in the line of duty.

It is also an opportunity to show our appreciation for those who have and continue to serve. Unfortunately this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Remembrance Day celebrations across the country will not be taking place as usual.

However, the Royal British Legion is encouraging people to mark Remembrance Day by heading to their doorsteps to take part in a two minute silence at 11am.

Our Veterans Service remains fully operational and usually sees a rise in referral rates around this time.

Becky Last, Assistant Practitioner, said: "The Veterans team are available for any British Armed Forces Veterans residing within our organisation area. We offer specialist assessment, short term interventions and treatment pathways for Veterans with military related trauma.

"We are also available for information, advice and signposting."

There is currently a band 6 vacancy within the team, find out more about the Senior Mental Health Practitioner (Veterans Service) role. Contact Dave Bright, Community Team Manager, on davebright@nhs.net or 01392 207799 for further information.
