Soldier On Welcomes Royal Commission

Soldier On stands with our veteran community and welcome Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s call for a royal commission into veteran suicide.

The rate of suicide of ADF ex-service men from 2002-2018 was 21% higher than the national male average, and 127% higher for ex-serving females.

This problem is pervasive and now well recognised by individuals, organisations, and the government.

At Soldier On, we stand with our serving and ex-serving veterans and their families. Our primary consideration lies in ensuring that our veteran community is equipped with the mental health and wellbeing support that they need to thrive.
