Department of Veterans’ Affairs Practitioner Support Service

Do you have a question or need advice related to veteran mental health?

The DVA Practitioner Support Service is a free, nation-wide service, funded by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to provide expert multidisciplinary support and guidance to health practitioners, support organisations and others working with Australian veterans with mental health problems.

Free consultations are available to all Australian practitioners and organisations with queries about veteran mental health. The DVA Practitioner Support Service involves the Health Professionals Advice Line, GP Advice Line and the General Advice Line.

No query is too simple or too complex, and mental health does not need to be the primary focus of your work with a client. We have a multidisciplinary team of expert consultants in veteran and military mental health who can respond to you enquiry. We will use the information you provide to direct your enquiry to the most appropriate team member to ensure that their expertise is matched to your needs.
