Change Direction: May 18 - 24

Stand Tall for PTS are partners with the Global Organisation "Change Direction." We are all dedicated to improving the mental health of all Veterans and First Responders but with recent events we now find ourselves needing to include those who will find themselves in a dark place as a result of the Bush Fires and the Corona Virus Pandemic.

To help alleviate some of this we are proposing everyone gets on board during the week of May 18 to 24 to help to "Change Direction". A Week to Change Direction is a virtual, global event where we are asking you to flood social media by sharing how you are taking care of your emotional well-being by creating and maintaining Healthy Habits. It has become apparent to me that many creative souls are doing this sort of thing off their own bat. But this is a chance for the whole world to join together and be as crazy and creative as you can be.

To everyone, my old advertising mates, my cricket mates, my old army buddies, other veterans and first responders, share this event with thousands more and please embrace this opportunity to create some fantastic stuff and show the world that we will not be beaten. As I keep hearing “we’re all in this together”. - Tony Dell
