THE HOME FRONT explores the plight of Australia's modern war veterans, taking viewers on a journey of discovery into a world all too often filled with darkness, depression, PTSD, homelessness and suicide.
The film will allow our vets to tell their own stories (anonymously where necessary). They will be supplemented by the stories of their families and loved ones. And their problems will be examined by experts and illustrated with real examples.
Our modern veterans are tragically over-represented in our homeless and in our suicides. One in every 20 of Australia’s homeless are veterans.
Ex-servicemen under 30 have a suicide rate more than twice that of the national average.
