Skills for recovery programs

Programs that give you the right skills and strategies to manage long-term wellbeing.

There are many pathways to a positive future through our Skills for Recovery Programs.

We know that injuries come in many forms and there can’t be a one-size-fits-all approach to recovery, which is why our programs incorporate a range of rehabilitation options.  

Our Skills for Recovery Programs are designed to provide veterans and their family members with opportunities to develop relevant skills and strategies that will help them move forward in life and manage their wellbeing into the future.  

We are here to provide recovery options that meet your needs. Our programs offer a variety of sessions and workshops designed to build resilience and assist with emotional-regulation and distress tolerance. 

Due to the current changes and Government restrictions, a number of our programs have been cancelled. Please check back here regularly as we will soon be launching new Skills for Recovery programs that will be accessible virtually and in person.

Mates4Mates has supported me with their psychological and physical services. I have made really good friends. This support has led me to complete a Rehabilitation Adventure Program and that was life changing.
