Operation PTSD Support

When your loved one is struggling with their mental health, the impact may be felt by everyone in the family. So you can stay strong for them, it’s important for you – as a partner or carer – to take care of yourself.

Through Operation PTSD Support, partners and carers of veterans can take a break from the stress of caring for their loved one, share experiences with others who are in a similar situation, and learn more about PTSD and mental health first aid.

Operation PTSD Support holds retreats on the Gold Coast throughout the year. Veteran partners and carers can also join Operation PTSD Support’s private online community to connect, ask for advice, or participate in local social events.


Retreats are open to partners of current or former service people who are experiencing mental health issues.

There is a nominal cost to participants, support from RSL Queensland makes this possible.
