Transitioning to civilian life can be challenging for some veterans. Finding suitable work, adjusting to life after service, and coping with past experiences can be difficult and confronting. 
When people leave Defence, there are many organisations that are committed to supporting them to successfully move on to the next stage in their lives. There are 24-hour help lines, chat forums and online information available through Defence, Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA), Open Arms – Veterans & Families Counselling, major mental health organisations, and veteran-specific support organisations. Our organisation works to support mateship, and celebrate their courage, endurance and sacrifice
