On the Line recognises that many current serving and ex-Defence personnel are reluctant to talk about how their experiences affect their mental health. Depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and difficulties transitioning to civilian life are not new issues among Australian Defence Force personnel. What has changed, is how the symptoms of post traumatic disorder and other mental health issues are recognised and managed.
