2017 09 01 EngageVCDF

A new website aims to improve support for wounded, injured and ill current and former Australian Defence Force personnel, their families and those who assist with their care.

Minister for Defence Personnel Dan Tehan launched the ‘Engage, Supporting Those Who Serve’ website on 11 August.

The website aims to simplify the process of finding and accessing free information, support and services. ‘Engage’ is part of the Support for Wounded, Injured and Ill Program that is a joint Defence and Department of Veterans’ Affairs initiative.

2017 08 28 SupportA new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Australian Defence Force personnel is due for release in October this year.

Air Vice-Marshal Tracy Smart is Commander of Joint Health and said that it was important that people seek help as early as possible for any mental health concerns they may have. 

"Defence has a wide range of mental health services available for current ADF members," said Smart.

2017 08 13 SocialMedia

What you can or can’t post on social media as a Defence member is often not well understood.

Bottom Line Up Front: You can participate in the Australian marriage law debate and debate on other public issues, but: be respectful, keep your uniforms out of it, don't harass others, stick to discussing the issues, and avoid discussing political parties.

We’ll try to break down what policy means, but you need to make up your own mind about what is suitable to post on social media. If you write it, you own it, and must live with the consequences from the words that you write.
