Event description
A tactical and practical workshop designed to help faith leaders work with veterans in their communities

About this Event

Wounded Spirit is an Australian Registered Charity that works with Defence Veterans whose military service may have created issues of faith and spirituality which are influencing their mental health and overall general well-being. Wounded Spirit is an interfaith organisation that works with all faiths and beliefs to help them to assist Defence veterans in their communities.

Throughout 2020 Wounded Spirit will be conducting a national series of Veterans Faith First Aid Workshops across Australia. The whole focus of these workshop is to help anyone who wants to work more effectively with veterans within their communities on issues of faith and spirituality. This is not just for Priests, Pastors and Lay Workers and so on but all types of health professionals, family members, friends and in fact anyone who wants to understand how help veterans manage issues of faith. Many Veterans have issues of faith and spirituality as a result of their which are influencing their mental health and overall general well-being. This is an important although as yet, not a widely discussed or understood issue. These workshops are not about religion, theology or dogma but rather, the tactical and practical knowledge faith leaders need to understand about veterans in order for them to be more effective in their support.

The tour has been made possible by a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs and we work closely with the Department of Defence and a number of national faith organisations and groups across Australia.
