THE SWISS 8 TRIBE
Our Tribe Leaders are authentic, raw, direct, strong, disciplined and unapologetically honest. They take action without being asked, and offer a supporting hand to their mates in need.
The Swiss 8 Tribe was created to be a way of creating groundswell action, led by Veterans with lived-experience who are passionate and connected to their communities. With multiple placements around the nation, our Tribe can be activated at any point.
Leading by example and taking action where it’s needed the most makes our Tribe a force to be reckoned with.
Having lost a few mates to suicide and having gone through my own ongoing mental health battles, I was searching for ways to reconnect with the Veteran community and help break the stigma with mental health. When Swiss 8 was born after Jesse Bird passed, I found a way to do both, becoming a Tribe Leader brought me a sense of purpose again, and allowed me to re-engage with the lads (some of whom I’ve not seen in over a decade) while helping to spread the mental health message and let people know they aren’t alone. Couldn’t be more proud of being involved with Swiss 8.
