Supporting veterans

Mental health is an issue for those returning from active service and the Government has responded with additional funding for mental health programs.

Expanded mental health programs

Mental health programs will be funded by $26.4 million on investment. Non-liability health cover will be extended for certain conditions and expanded access to the Veterans and Veterans’ Families Counselling service will also be available.

ANZAC Centenary

A further $25 million will be provided to help commemorate the Centenary of ANZAC, taking total Government funding to $140 million.
