July 18, 2019 Newsletter
We were really fascinated by this story about the current provision for mental health in the Armed Forces. Following huge investment and better understanding of mental health issues, serving military personnel are reporting a very low rate of mental ill-health – averaging at 2.7%, compared to 4.4% among the British public. It’s clear from this that mental health provision for our serving colleagues is pretty good.
However, there was a huge red flag for us in this article, in that many veterans find it difficult to find work when they leave the forces due to a perception among employers that they are likely to have mental health issues. Let’s make this really clear; all our employers know your value and we will keep on spreading the word!
On a lighter note, we enjoyed watching the attendance figures notch up for this Facebook event for people planning to “storm Area 51 and see the aliens”… Good luck with that, chaps!

Joke: Calling card
A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door.
He took out a business card, wrote 'Revelation 3:20' on the back of it and stuck it in the door.
When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, 'Genesis 3:10..'
Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock."
Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."
