The measures were announced by Defence Secretary Liam Fox at the Conservative Party conference and are among steps recommended in a report commissioned by Prime Minister David Cameron. They include a 24-hour helpline and extra mental health nurses to support those who have served in the forces after research found that one in four of those who fought in Iraq suffered mental health problems.
