CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
Liverpool Veterans HQ says:
We can help veterans who have mental health issues when they are taken into custody. LVP HQ are currently part of a pilot project working alongside Mersey Care NHS Trust (its one of ten national pilots). It supports people who are in the system or on probation in Liverpool, Sefton or Kirkby.
If they are not convicted LVP HQ can support veterans. If a veteran is in prison they will be supported by a Veterans in Custody Support Officer (VICSO).
LVP HQ supports veterans on a case by case basis.
