MindRight provides ex-serving ADF members with the tools to successfully undertake the mindset shift from sailor, solider or aviator to civilian.
MindRight is a one-day workshop that equips participants with the tools and awareness needed to make a positive transition from military to civilian life. It helps participants to develop an ability to understand and value their identity beyond defence.
StoryRight, the predecessor of MindRight was developed with the intent of helping veterans tell their ‘story’ of military experience in ways that are ‘right’ for the civilian job market.
Upon running StoryRight, it became apparent that participants also needed assistance with the emotional and identity side of transition. With that in mind, MindRight was developed to provide Australian Defence Force members with the tools to successfully undertake the mindset shift from sailor, solider or aviator to civilian.
The MindRight program specifically targets common major problems veterans experience when leaving the military such as:
Feeling socially marginalised when leaving the military
Losing a sense of purpose
Frustration from a clash between military and civilian codes.
MindRight is a veteran-led program which will equip ex-serving ADF members with the tools to:
Reflect on attitudes and behaviors in civilian workspaces and transfer relevant skills development from their time in the military
Increase cultural awareness of how to portray themselves when seeking employment
Engage in post-discharge planning
Separate themselves from military life to civilian life.
To be eligible for a place in the program:
You must be currently serving or have previously served in the Australian Defence Force or in the Reserve.
Group bookings are available
This is applicable to Defence Business Units, Ex-Service Organisations and Veterans’ Groups wanting to make a group booking (for up to 12 participants).
