For some Veterans, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on mental health and wellbeing.
This free service offers one-on-one support from a lived experience veteran to help you improve your wellbeing, develop strategies to cope and provide emotional support when and as you need it.
Working with a fellow veteran, you explore what is causing your stress or anxiety and help you gain clarity on your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Conversations will be a safe place for you to talk privately about your experiences without judgement.
Through support and practical advice, your fellow veteran will help you find strategies to manage stress, anxiety and improve your wellbeing and resilience.
We help you to identify people in your life, support services, and other resources to draw on during times of stress.
If required, your fellow veteran will assist you to link with other support services in your local community.
We keep in regular contact with you to provide emotional support, practical assistance and help you use the strategies you have identified to manage your stress, anxiety and improve your wellbeing.
Carers may experience these challenges in their own right in addition to providing care to a loved one.
Support is available for carers, family and others who also may be particularly vulnerable during this time, with the additional distress of COVID-19, making it harder to cope, stay connected or manage wellbeing.
