The Australian Defence Force Rehabilitation Program is a multi-disciplinary strategy aimed at maximising a member's potential for restoration to their pre-injury physical, occupational, social, psychological and educational status.
The ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills Program (ARRTS) offers a supportive learning environment to assist personnel in their individual recovery. Members continuing in service and those who may shortly transition to civilian life will benefit from participation.
The ADF Paralympic Sports Program in conjunction with the Australian Paralympic Committee enables severely injured ADF members with acquired disabilities, equitable access to sport through to the elite international level.
Wounds and injuries are not limited to the physical. Mental health injuries such as anxiety, depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are also experienced by some of our service men and women.
The Wounded, Injured and Ill Diggers' Forum provides an avenue for exchange of information and ideas between Army and its broader family. It enables wounded, injured and ill and their families to provide feedback on the key issues and concerns of members and families in the immediate aftermath of injury.
