Ex soldiers/soldiers support group
The supportive group is for veterans, soldiers, retired and discharged soldiers who face challenges in regards to their new identity. When you are soldier there are things that you are doing without questioning or doubting the orders. At times, the support provided was taken for granted but still the sense of belonging and having a purpose were unquestionably powerful. Without that identity of the soldiers you might feel lost, confused or even that you do not fit. People who are not disciplined might upset you and without realising it you might become frustrated and angry. You wake up in the morning and there is no mate to laugh with or the silent moment where you gather your thoughts and despite how many fights you have fought the everyday fight feels overpowering. People admire you for your courage and ask you questions that you do not want to answer or you feel that you are not understood. The specialised language that you use seems that no one can understand it.
The group aims to provide support to those individuals to increase their sense of belonging and all together build a safe network in order to enjoy life again. The group will be of maximum 10 people and the facilitator. It is an ongoing closed group.
