Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Remount assists returned servicemen and women of primarily the Australian Defence Force (“ADF”) (including veterans and current servicemen and women taking a break from the ADF), but also emergency personnel, and their families to manage the impact of stress, injury, loss and/or mental health challenges and illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”).

Remount provides each participant with ‘breathing space’ to engage in horsemanship activities that sooth psychological and emotional injuries and improve mental fitness so that they feel more able to adapt to and self-manage the effects of PTSD that hinder their social wellbeing.

Remount recognises the importance of finding meaningful life direction and the benefits of self- management and social connectedness for sufferers to recover from PTSD. Remount provides a compassionate, empathetic communication in a safe and inclusive environment that fosters recognition of mental health concerns in Remount participants and help seeking to address these.

Remount provides current and ex-serving members with the opportunity to identify their mental and physical challenges (e.g. PTSD); develop the skills and abilities to manage their challenges, and seek further help if required; rebuild their self-confidence and communication skills, and provide them, through low-pressure but practical and hands-on activities, with the tools to reconnect with their families and networks and regain their lives with the mental and physical challenges they face.

Remount activities include (but are not limited to):
o horsemanship training clinics;
o experiences with the horses including treks, cattle drives, equine competition;
o practical work such as cattle mustering, stock yard work, animal husbandry training, and leather working.
