I'm fundraising to help reduce veteren suicide
There is ongoing concern within the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the wider Australian community about suicide in serving and ex-serving ADF personnel. In particular, ex-serving ADF personnel may face increased risk of suicide.
Recent government inquiries have highlighted the need to improve the integration of service responses to meet the health and wellbeing needs of serving and ex-serving ADF personnel (JSCFADT 2015). The need to invest in prevention and early intervention strategies to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for these groups has also been highlighted. The Government has introduced further suicide prevention and mental health support services for serving and ex-serving ADF personnel and their families (AG 2017).
Because that’s the length of the Kokoda Track which stands as a symbol of the courage and sacrifice our defence community make to keep us safe.
In doing this, I need your help with a donation so Soldier On can continue to provide vital support services to the selfless service men and women, and their families, who have done so much to serve our nation.
Every dollar you donate to my page will go to directly to Soldier On and you will automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt via email as soon as you have made your donation.
So, please support me while I March On with Soldier On. Wish me luck as I set out to do my bit for our brave veterans!
Why this...Thursday 3rd Dec The longer I progress through my service, the more shipmates I/we seem to lose. We are lucky to have an organisation like Solider On that are committing to helping our veterans and their families. We just need more exposure so they can stretch their services further. Thanks to all who are joining this team and committing their time and energy to raising funds and a big thanks to those that will contribute. Love you all, Dutch xx Share
