26 October to 3 November — Mental Wellness

This year Veterans' Health Week (VHW) will be held from

Saturday, 26 October, to Sunday, 3 November

and the theme will be mental wellness.

DVA will support ex-service organisations (ESOs) and community organisations with established links to the veteran community to deliver a range of events to highlight the importance of improving and maintaining good mental health. Mental wellness is essential for an individual's overall health and wellbeing which, in turn, strongly influences our physical health and social connectedness with family, friends and community.

ESOs and community organisations can apply for VHW funding or to register an event — refer to the VHW funding and registration guidelines for more information.

Applications close

The closing date for applications is Friday, 12 July 2019
