Veteran Wellbeing Centre

The South Australian Government has reactivated the Repat as a thriving health precinct that delivers on the needs of the community. An essential component of the Repat site activation is the inclusion of services and support for the veteran community through a dedicated Veteran Wellbeing Centre.

Health and wellbeing services assisting veterans and their families commenced at the new Veteran Wellbeing Centre from 1 June 2021.  Services also include those that assist in successful transition from Defence to civilian life, including advocacy, education, skills and employment, and housing and accommodation support.

The Centre, managed by SA Health, provides a safe and welcoming environment in which veterans and their families can access services and feel confident in seeking the support they need to improve their health and wellbeing.

Veterans’ Mental Health Precinct

The Veterans’ Mental Health Precinct, located within the Glenside Health Service Campus consists of the Jamie Larcombe Centre (JLC) and the Partnerships Hub. Managed by SA Health, the precinct closely aligns with the objectives of the Repat Veteran Wellbeing Centre in supporting veterans and families.

The Jamie Larcombe Centre (JLC) provides clinical mental health and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) services to veterans. The Centre was purpose built to accommodate services previously provided by Ward 17 at the Repatriation General Hospital.

The Centre comprises an ambulatory service incorporating outpatient treatment and a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) service, 24 single rooms with ensuites, outpatient rooms, a gymnasium, research spaces, gardens and a children’s playground for families.

A Model of Care for Specialist Mental Health Services for Veterans has been developed, outlining the services provided at the JLC and how these services are to be delivered. The model of care builds on the previous model for Ward 17 at the Repatriation General Hospital, taking into consideration the wide range of services delivered at the precinct, and is based on evidence-based practice to ensure it will meet the needs of current and future Veterans.

The Partnerships Hub (the Hub) is managed by and included in the model of care for the JLC and provides additional space for clinical and non-clinical services delivered by the centre.

Clinical services such as 1:1 counselling and group therapy are provided to inpatients and outpatients of the JLC, maintaining the Hub as a valued “safe-space” for supporting veterans’ health and wellbeing.

The Hub is also available for in-reach services from ex-service organisations at negotiated times, to provide wellbeing services to JLC inpatients and outpatients.

Drop-in access to veteran and family wellbeing services is available at the Repat Veteran Wellbeing Centre in Daw Park from 9.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday.

To contact the JLC and Partnerships Hub, please phone 1300 043 175.
