This report examines how and why the lives of some service personnel fall apart on leaving the British Armed Forces, asks how they can be rebuilt and presents solutions to prevent these personal tragedies. It is based around five key issues that confront some service leavers, explores the barriers that exist to their successful re-integration at their point of discharge, and examines the consequences of failing to overcome them. They are employment, housing and homelessness, alcohol and drug use, mental health, and crime
