Soldier On is focused on providing support to all Australians who have been wounded, physically or psychologically, through their service in the Australian Defence Force, the Emergency Services, the AFP and DFAT, as well as their families. Many of these people are dealing with significant mental illness, social isolation, relationship stress and a lack of empowerment. Many are also struggling to transition from active service to medical retirement or new areas of employment. Soldier On’s vision is to have the best reintegrated generation of service men and women in the history of Australia.
Soldier On is pleased to announce that we now have two experienced clinical psychologists in both Canberra and Sydney who provide the following:
- Individual counseling for adults and adolescents
- Couples and relationship counseling
- Counselling for families
This service is available to anyone who has been affected by their service, be they current or ex-serving members, and to the partners and families who support them.
Our discreet counselling service is not just for military veterans but for anyone who has been affected by their service.
We offer evidenced-based psychological treatment to address a range of mental health issues, including:
- Trauma and stress-related issues
- Relationship difficulties
- Pain and injury adjustment concerns
Referrals can be made by means of a GP Mental Health Care Plan (Medicare) or in accordance with an individual’s accepted entitlements through DVA (White or Gold Card). All of our services are bulk-billed. There are no out of pocket expenses for anyone accessing our mental health services.
To access services, or to make an enquiry, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone one of our Psychologists on 02-6188-6143/4 in Canberra or 02-6188-6150 in Sydney.
