Improving the mental health of veterans

The Centenary of Anzac Centre comprises a Treatment Research Collaboration and a Practitioner Support Service. Through the integrated work of these two components, it will ensure better treatments and improved lives for Australia’s veterans and military personnel and their families.

The Anzac Centre brings together researchers, clinicians, ex-service organisations, and agencies caring for veterans in order to establish and promote a veteran mental health network.


The Centenary of Anzac Centre will provide national leadership in improving mental health care for veterans. Through a collaborative approach, it will produce innovations in evidence-based treatments and will support practitioners to provide the best possible care. Veterans and their families will benefit enormously.
