Veterans’ Health Week
This year’s theme of Social Connection is one of the most important aspects of your mental health and wellbeing, and it is more important than ever to remain connected with your family, friends and local community.
While Veterans’ Health Week ended on 1 November, events continue to be hosted for the next couple of weeks in local communities across the country. Events are listed on the Veterans’ Health Week page to help find those in your local area.
Local organisations and community groups came up with innovative ideas for hosting activities this year including virtual fitness events, indoor skiing, trivia challenges and workshops in mental health, makeup, cooking and art, creating new opportunities for our veteran communities across Australia.
Reaching out to those who are feeling isolated, particularly while we all continue to deal with COVID-19 is important.
For more information call 1800 VETERAN (1800 838 372) or visit the web page above.
Event hosts and attendees must be aware of local state or territory restrictions, and ensure events follow all health guidelines including appropriate social distancing at all times.
