Conceptual Framework

Our vision for an accessible, coordinated mental health system for Veterans and their Families.

We are proud to announce the development of a new Framework that will create the best possible mental health system for Veterans and their families.

In partnership with Phoenix Australia – Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health, we have developed a Conceptual Framework to guide the implementation of best and next practice in services and supports for Veterans and their Families (PDF, 43.4 MB).

This Framework represents the beginning of the conversation about how best to support Veterans and their families. To be successful, the Framework will require the involvement and support of all stakeholders: Veterans, Veteran Family Members, service providers, researchers, governments, community partners, and others.

    A specialized guide: A transformed mental health system for Veterans and their families: brief implementation guide

    Along with the detailed Framework, we have developed the first in a series of related guides: A transformed mental health system for Veterans and their families: brief implementation guide (PDF, 14.7 MB)[text-only version], outlining our role in creating the highest performing mental health supports and services for Veterans and Veteran Families.

    As an intermediary – or connector between researchers, policy-makers, and service providers – our role is to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice. In order to build a coordinated mental health system for Veterans and Veteran Family Members, we all need to take what we know (evidence and research) and put it into daily practice.
