The Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) held two South of England briefing events, the first in Portsmouth on Thursday 30th and the second in Andover on Friday 31st March, which were attended by over 55 people in total…

Attendees came from a wide range of sectors including the Armed Forces Community and the Armed Forces charity sector as well as other key stakeholders and interested parties who work to support ex-Service personnel, and their families.

The events, which were the latest in a series of regional briefings, were led by Chief Executive of FiMT, Air Vice-Marshal Ray Lock CBE, and supported by his executive team. A presentation at the event highlighted FiMT’s work to provide an evidence base which aims to influence policy making and service delivery, in order to enable ex-Service personnel and their families to lead successful civilian lives.

There was also an update on FiMT’s strategy, current work and priorities, and the Mental Health Research Programme. Attendees had the opportunity to engage with FiMT’s executive team and network over lunch.

FiMT would like to thank everyone who attended the two events and made them so interesting and enjoyable.
