Supporting the mental
health of our emergency response and defence
Every day in so many ways, our nation’s first responders and defence force personnel put their lives on the line to save the lives of others, to protect property and to keep our communities safe.
Whether it's responding to road accidents, domestic violence, or natural emergencies such as the horrific bushfires in January 2020 or the current Covid-19 Pandemic, first responders are at the centre of these traumatic events. So too are many of our Service men and women who witness active duty at home and overseas.
This regular exposure to trauma and human suffering can have significant consequences for the mental health of these brave men and women. Depression, anxiety and PTSD are just some of those consequences that can have life-threatening implications.
When you join the exclusive Chamberlain Champions network, you can commit to making a regular tax-deductible donation of as little as $12.50 a week.
In recognition of your loyal generosity, you will receive:
• priority booking for Chamberlain
• regular briefings from the
• exclusive invitations to speaking
events throughout the year
• First access to news and blogs
Your support will contribute directly to projects that reduce the incidence of suicide and provide awareness and support for PTSD and other mental health conditions for men and women working in emergency response and the defence force.
The Chamberlain Foundation is a 100% volunteer-driven charity. Until now, we have raised funds exclusively through a range of signature events: donating more than $300,000 over five years to charity partners such as RUOK?, Griefline and Lifeline.
We are committed to having an even a greater impact and becoming more strategic in our funding of mental health initiatives. But to fund more purposeful projects at a more sustainable level, the Foundation needs you to make a special commitment.
