About Frontline Fund
As we continue to face compounding disasters this summer season, from floods on the east coast to fires on the west coast, first responders are tasked with keeping our communities safe. Paid and volunteer firefighters, State Emergency Service members, and their first responder colleagues are exhausted and have a long couple of months ahead.
While much work has been done to prepare for bushfires, floods and other disasters, there is still a lot to do. This is where Fortem Australia steps in. We lead Australia in delivering support to first responders and their families, nurturing resilience to boost mental health and wellbeing.
Our ambassadors share their messages and lived experiences to foster connection and understanding around the importance of mental fitness for long-term health and wellbeing.
"I feel safer to have these conversations (about my mental health) and confident that I will be well supported from the outside and have a safe space away from both my everyday life and from my work life."
"Fortem has showed me I have a skillset that is very valuable to the greater community. Learning something new and having a goal to look forward to has increased my strength as a paramedic and has prolonged my career.”
I believe wholeheartedly in their approach, which aligns exactly with what I see, hear and know from the research is needed in the space of first responder health and wellbeing.
