Mates4Mates Partners and Carers Program

  • Are you the partner or carer of a veteran who has been impacted by service?
  • Are you looking for strategies to support your own mental health and wellbeing?
  • Do you need support to understand the impacts of transitioning?

If you answered yes, then our Partners and Carers Program may be for you. 

What is the Partners and Carers Program?

The Partners and Carers Program is designed to support partners and carers of veterans and current serving Defence Force personnel whose lives have been impacted by service and provide them with strategies to support their own mental health and wellbeing.

Participants will learn of the impacts transitioning out of the Defence Force can have on the family, the importance of social connection, and how to manage the unique challenges that the Defence Force life brings.

This program will be led by a team of social workers and counsellors.
