Service personnel who have been involved in operations both overseas and at home, can experience traumatic events. This trauma, if left untreated, can impact greatly on their lives.
The Veterans Peer Support Program (VPS) is delivered to enhance outcomes for ex-serving or transitioning military personnel who are receiving healthcare and/or rehabilitation for a mental health condition. Through the connection of similar lived experiences, emotional and practical support is provided by a peer mentor to promote self-advocacy and empower a person with the necessary tools for recovery and to strive to improve their quality of life.
For more information or to become involved in the VPS Program, please phone (07) 4725 3664.
