Australian Military Bank Welcomes Action on Veteran Suicide in Australia

Posted: 24 Apr 2021
Australian Military Bank welcomes the announcement from the Australian Government regarding the high rates of suicide within the Veteran community and looks forward to seeing tangible outcomes for impacted Australians who serve our country and their families.

“We can’t begin to understand the challenging experiences our members and their families face during their time serving our country. This extends to the unique circumstances they may face post service” says Australian Military Bank’s CEO Darlene Mattiske-Wood.

“Australian Military Bank would like to highlight the work that our community partners, including Soldier On, Mates4Mates, Legacy and RSL DefenceCare, do in assisting Veterans and their families, especially as they transition into life after service. We hope that the current conversation results in greater support for our Veterans and the critical organisations that focus on their and their families’ wellbeing.”
