PTSD Veterans and First Responders


Monarch Supports Veterans and First Responders

The Monarch Mental Health Group is extremely grateful to Australia’s veterans and first responders for their continued engagement in serving our community. As a patient-focused mental health organisation, it is only logical to care for their unique circumstances and needs.


What is post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Overview. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

In line with our promise to deliver a gold-standard level of care to all our patients, Monarch Mental Health Group has been taken initiatives such as:

  • The development of a dedicated Monarch Mental Health Group protocol for PTSD by Professor Paul Fitzgerald, informed by the latest research and evidence. This protocol allows for the treatment of both the depression and the anxiety component of PTSD in under 60 minutes.

  • The creation of specific factsheets on PTSD and Monarch Mental Health Group.

  • A continued liaison with veterans’ psychiatrists and patient support groups.

If you are a veteran or first responder, or are caring for one, you can contact us. Our friendly and professional team will be able to answer all your questions on what is the Monarch Mental Health Group, how it works, and how it could help in your unique situation.
