FCO guidance for travellers with mental health needsThe FCO are raising awareness of how travellers with mental health needs can prepare before travelling overseas, and how the FCO can help should travellers experience difficulties
From 2009/10 to 2014/15 the number of British nationals with mental health needs requiring help from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) increased by 48 percent globally .
A helpful leaflet and check list are available containing guidance on travelling abroad and mental health, and information about how the FCO is able to assist British nationals with mental health needs abroad. The leaflet also explains some of the differences between English law and practice and that of other countries.
