What We Are Doing

From base to base, town to town, our veterans will walk be holding events and sharing this proactive tool.

The Stomp is an event that will bring communities together. Mental ill-health is not a problem unique to veterans. It is an issue facing our entire society.
Along the route we will be pushing social posts, holding live podcasts, filming a documentary and engaging with local communities. We will be driving the message that our veterans are not broken. Veterans have experience with mental ill-health and want to show the public that there are tools available that can help.
