We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn't quite right, you've got something on your mind, or things just seem too much. Whatever it may be, sharing the load with someone else can really help.

So no matter who you are, or how you're feeling, you can talk it through with us – we'll point you in the right direction so you can seek further support.

Last year more than 150,000 people in Australia contacted us about their concerns – both big and small – and you can too.

All calls and chats are one-on-one with a trained mental health professional, and completely confidential. Although we may ask for your first name and some general details, you can let us know if you’d like to remain anonymous

FOR SERVICE PERSONNEL AND THEIR FAMILIES

We help service personnel and their families build successful futuresSince 1990, over 290,000 brave men and women have served our country in the Australian Defence Force.

From wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to peacekeeping missions in East Timor, Bougainville, Cambodia, the Solomon Islands, Somalia and Rwanda, our veterans have undertaken extraordinary tasks in defence of our nation.

At Soldier On, we recognise that throughout these operations, the ADF and greater National Security Community have worked side by side.

This is why we now also offer support to Australian Federal Police, Australian Border Force, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and other security agencies.
