Mates4Mates Senate Inquiry

This week the Senate released long-awaited findings of the Inquiry into suicide by veterans and ex-service personnel, titled The Constant Battle: Suicide by Veterans.  Our client Mates4Mates provided a submission to this Inquiry in February this year and many of the recommendations made by the organisation were endorsed, making this a positive step forward for Australia’s veteran community.

In line with the report, Mates4Mates provided commentary to Channel 10 News – Queensland, Channel 7 News – Queensland, 4ZZZ and 4BC.  You can view a news piece from Channel 7 News here.
