Disabled veterans deliver mental health message to Grantham pupils

A group of veterans who have all lost limbs hosted an inspirational workshop at Grantham College to help combat mental health.

The veterans, who are all volunteers from Blesma, a charity dedicated to assisting limbless veterans to lead full and independent lives, have been delivering the workshops in an effort to combat the effects of anxiety, low self-esteem and poor mental health as part of the Making Generation R programme, which supports injured veterans to take their inspiring stories about overcoming adversity to schools across the UK.
