Veteran mental health educational seminars

The Practitioner Support Service offers a range of free 2-hour educational seminars to assist you and/or your staff in providing practical, effective support and treatment for veterans.

Understanding the military and veteran experience is critical to providing effective help, support, and treatment, as is using the most effective, evidence-based strategies.

Our seminars are suited to a range of roles, including support workers, community workers, mental and allied health practitioners, and medical practitioners. The seminars are presented by highly skilled clinicians and can be tailored to the context of your work and the needs of your staff.
