“It’s good to know if I do have any issues down the track, there’s someone I can go back to.”

Every year the 5,000 to 6,000 people who discharge from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) are able to access the ADF post-discharge GP health assessment – an early intervention program designed to identify and help address health issues.

We worked with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) to create a suite of eight very short films for release on social media, designed to raise awareness of the program among veterans themselves, their families, and General Practitioners.

We sourced talent, filmed on locations including regional NSW and the Sapphire Coast, and interviewed two GPs promoting the assessment tool to their peers.
