Episode 7 – Supporting Younger Veterans
Posted on: Mon 10 Jan 2022
This 7-part project produced for the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia in partnership with RSL SA/NT & BH, Plympton Veterans Centre and Service Voices 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, partners/families and organisations.
Episodes 7 of 7. Contributors:
Matthew (Matt) Bunt (Veteran); Dr Sharon Mascall-Dare StoryRight (Veteran); Matthew Newlands Mental Health Advocate (SAPOL Veteran); Jason O’Malley (Veteran, SAPOL Veteran); Julia Langrehr (Veteran/wife); Dr Ben Wadham Director Open Door: Veteran Transition, Integration and Wellbeing (Veteran); Wesley Woulleman (Veteran/Advocate); Catherine Walsh Director Veterans SA (Veteran); Vivienne Lawrence ADF Transition Centre Manager; Kate Brauns (Veteran’s wife)
