Counsellin­g service free for veterans


FORMER military service personnel are being offered free counsellin­g to help them overcome depression and loneliness in a Scots local authority area.

The Aged Veterans Counsellin­g Service can help residents who may be experienci­ng the problems or anxiety and bereavemen­t in East Dunbartons­hire.

Provost Una Walker said: “Talking to a counsellor really can help, especially for elderly people who may already be suffering from loneliness. Just having someone willing to listen can make such a difference.

“The only qualificat­ion is that you were a national serviceman. The counsellin­g service is also open to men and women born before January 1,1950 who served in UK armed forces.”
