Operation PTSD Support

When your loved one is struggling with their mental health, the impact may be felt by everyone in the family. So, it’s even more important to take care of yourself so that you can be strong for them.

Through Operation PTSD Support, partners 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.

Retreats are held on the Gold Coast in May, August and November each year.

Partners can also take advantage of Operation PTSD Support’s private online community to connect or ask for advice or participate in one of its regular 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.
