This Anzac Day, Soldier On Australia conducted an awareness and education campaign in honour of those Australians who returned from war 100 years ago, and to support the ongoing services that they continue to offer to veterans and their families.
In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Soldier On CEO Mat Jones, who discusses the campaign, his journey into the role that he is in today, and the programs that Soldier On is conducting to help defence personnel transition into life after service.
He will address the shift in dialogue in recent years away from the stigmatisation of mental health issues and the acceptance of mental health conditions as an “injury” like any other, reveal the types of roles that veterans are shifting into, and why he believes that one of the key concerns facing the sector is collaboration across companies, departments, and various stakeholders involved in the life after service transition process.
