  • Separation
  • Inability to cope – stress / crisis
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Social issues arising from mental and physical ill health
  • Problems arising from deployment
  • Supporting families who are working with statutory agencies

An Army Welfare Service office is based within Dreghorn Barracks, Edinburgh, which covers all south and central Scotland
