Urgent needs need urgent support
"Urgent care is early intervention. We know that the sooner someone receives professional help for their mental health the better the outcome. We bring that theory to life at Icarus. We respond quickly, professionally and compassionately." Sarah Jones, Icarus Clinical Director
Flexible mental health provision
Icarus was formed in response to a need for more immediate and effective support.
We are committed to improving the quality of mental health provision for our veteran community.

Founded by veterans, and veteran-led,

“We know in the armed forces we don't leave a man behind do we? We don't leave a man down. And it's the same at Icarus. All three services and all arms are represented here. It just goes to show we are one brotherhood and one sisterhood and we are all still here for each other. ”
