Who we are
Fortem Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that supports emergency service and national security families to take proactive steps to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
Fortem is independent of Government and works directly with current-serving individuals, and their families, to have positive impacts on overall wellbeing.
Fortem focuses on wellbeing forged through connection. We offer connection activities designed to strengthen mental and emotional health while assisting to build protective factors. These activities are evidenced-based and are designed to complement existing programs already in place.
Fortem is currently running activities on Australia's east coast.
Fortem Australia will connect with the emergency service, law enforcement and national security communities to have a positive impact on their overall wellbeing.
- We connect families to a wider support network to improve wellbeing factors;
- We connect families together to strengthen family bonds;
- We connect communities together to enable awareness, education and support; and
- We connect organisations together to foster a collective effort around wellbeing.
