We are looking to change mental health support in the UK Armed Forces community
We will be providing a peer to peer platform for all serving and veteran personnel to share life experiences and help each other when life starts to get on top of us.
What makes Buddy Check different?
When serving in the Armed Forces you are constantly helping each other through taskings and orders.
When you have an inspection what do you do? You check your buddy to make sure they are in the right kit.
When you go on exercise, what do you do? You check your buddy to make sure they have all the equipment they need for the task.
Before you go into areas of conflict what do you do? You check your buddy to make sure they have everything they need to make it through to the other side.
We constantly look after each other when we are following orders. But what happens when the orders stop and we are left to look after ourselves?
What Buddy Check wants to do is to carry on that support when we need it the most. We want to bring the Armed Forces community together. To make sure those who, when they are at their most vulnerable, have a platform to make others aware of their current sitrep. Sharing their mental health feelings, so as a community we can offer support and guidance through the dark times, to a brighter future. We don’t leave anyone on the battlefield, we don’t want to leave anyone behind at home either.
