Mates4Mates STAIR Program

  • Do you experience difficulties regulating and managing your emotions?
  • Do you find yourself in situations responding with more intense emotions than appropriate?
  • Do you regularly experience periods of feeling overwhelmed by your feelings?
  • Does this impact on your relationships?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) Program might be for you.

What is the STAIR Program?

The STAIR Program has been specifically designed for veterans who have had traumatic experiences and are struggling with the aftereffects post service, so that they can better manage their emotions.

Over 12 group sessions (90 minutes, once per week), participants will work to improve emotional stability and gain effective psychological strategies to improve their capacity to tolerate distress, build resilience, and maintain and strengthen interpersonal relationships. 

Upcoming Programs:

Our next sessions will run at the Palmerston centre, Northern Territory every Wednesday, starting 7 September to 23 November, from 10:00am to 11:30am.

Veterans who are interested in participating in the STAIR 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 close Friday, 19 August 2022, however, expressions of interest may close sooner if a large volume of applications are received. It is therefore recommended that expressions of interest are submitted as soon as possible.

Places in the program are dependent on meeting the selection criteria. Please note submitting an expression of interest does not automatically qualify an applicant for the next step in the selection process for this program.

Places in the program are available to veterans who are registered with Mates4Mates only. If you are not an inducted Mates4Mates member and would like to take part, simply complete your Mates4Mates application online and our team will be in touch soon.
