"Veterans have long been a valued part of Australia’s community. They are respected and honoured for the contributions they make to our country and are deserving of the best quality of care and support that the Australian community can offer."
At midday today, SPA Board Director Mr Anastasios (Stan) Piperoglou will speak at a public hearing at Parliament House Canberra as part of the Inquiry into suicide by veterans and ex-service personnel.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank SPA members for contributing to our submission, particularly those from our Lived Experience Network who helped us determine key points to raise.
LISTEN: You can listen live here.
If you find the proceedings bring up tough emotions for you or someone you know, a reminder of some of the support available including Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service (24/7) on 1800 011 046 and Lifeline on 13 11 14.
