The Lean on Me Veterans project provides free of charge counselling for veterans leaving the forces in the last 24 months, and who need short-term support. This service is available to Veterans who live in the Wigan, Ashton and Leigh locality. The aim of Lean on Me Veterans is to take pressure off the Mental Health service. So those who are not involved with the Mental Health service could benefit by accessing counselling at a critical point in their lives. Our aim is to provide therapy to those Veterans before reaching crisis point.
