Just a quick post that may be of interest to partners, there is a nationwide (Australia) support group called Partners of Veterans Association (PVA). The PVA is open to current and former wives, partners and widow/ers of veterans with qualifying service (irrespective of which armed force or conflict the veteran served in) seeking emotional support and friendship of others in a similar situation.

Unfortunately, this is only open to partners of veterans but as Anthony has identified, the PTSD course has opened both of our eyes to the prevalence of PTSD in the wider community. Well, this group is a step in the right direction to helping others with PTSD. Small voices grouped can make a difference by improving the quality of lives of partners, increasing community awareness and hopefully improving the likelihood of greater assistance to all with PTSD.
