Mental Health Care for Transitioning ADF Personnel

Eligible ADF members transitioning from Defence will automatically receive a DVA White Card to access DVA-funded mental health care from GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists or other health providers.

If you are a health professional being approached by an ex-serving member for mental health treatment via a White Card, please check the veteran’s eligibility with DVA on first presentation of the card.

If the member has not yet received their White Card, they may access service by using their letter from DVA confirming eligibility.

DVA encourages health providers to alert their veteran patients to the mental health support available to them, including a White Card if they do not already have one.

Any person with at least one day of permanent or continuous full-time service is eligible to access Non-Liability Health Care for DVA-funded mental health treatment.  A diagnosis is not required, and there is no need for patients to link the mental health condition to their military service or make a compensation claim.
