Supporting Defence Family Members

Family members are often one of the first groups to identify early shifts and changes in the mental health and wellbeing of ADF members.

Data from the Wellness Action Through Checking Help (WATCH) project told us that family members want to be able to support ADF members in recognising these early changes and reaching out to appropriate supports.

This project aims to provide family members with practical advice and resources to enable them to feel empowered to provide support and guidance to ADF members in seeking help.
