Invictus Games

Beyond Blue is working together with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 (20-27 October) to highlight the positive impact that sport, physical exercise and participation can have on mental health and wellbeing.

The Games will see more than 500 competitors - former and current military personnel from 18 countries - arriving in Sydney to take part. 

While mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression are as common among defence personnel as the broader community, exposure to violent or traumatic events places them at greater risk.

Adjusting to a civilian life can be isolating and stressful, and requires resilience as former servicemen and women seek and settle into new jobs and try to establish new social routines and networks.

Watch the incredible journeys of four 2018 Australian Invictus Games Team Members and learn what helped them in their recovery from physical and mental health conditions.
