Episode 2 – Supporting Younger Veterans

Posted on: Mon 27 Dec 2021

This 7 part CBAA Supporting Younger Veteran Project is designed to increase awareness of some of our younger Veterans’ issues and the services that are available to assist them back into a fulfilling civilian life when they leave the military.  Throughout the series, we follow contemporary Veteran Matt Bunt as he transitions out of the Army into life as a civilian.  We intersperse the series with vignettes from other contemporary Veterans and organisations.

We give Listeners prior warning that today’s broadcast contains items about mental health that could cause issues for some people.
