Mates4Mates Explaining the Brain Program

Are you a veteran or a family member who wants to better understand how the brain is impacted by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

Then the Explaining the Brain Program may be for you.

What is the Explaining the Brain Program?

The Explaining the Brain Program is designed by our psychologists to help veterans and their families become better educated on the biological mechanisms of PTSD.

The group program will provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about how PTSD is developed and treated, as well as its symptoms and experiences for veterans and their families, in a safe environment.

Upcoming Programs


Our next group program will run online on Thursday, 22 August 2024, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm AEST.

Veterans and family members who are interested in participating in the Online Explaining the Brain Program will need to undertake an expression of interest (EOI) process. This EOI includes a clinical screening to ensure this program is suitable for you.

Expressions of interest for this program will open on Monday, 1 July 2024. If you are interested in upcoming programs, please don't hesitate to contact
