A COMPREHENSIVE post
screen (POPS) campaign will
be conducted from October
29 to November 9, and for
the first time, Enoggera
family members have been
strongly encouraged to
Under the new scheme,
members will begin their
POPS with support staff by
themselves, then part way
through the process family
members will be invited in.
Mental Health Psychology
and Rehabilitation direc-
tor general David Morton
said the ADF recognised the
importance of family support
and the challenges faced by
"Families, partners and
social supports are often the
first to notice changes in
members after deployments,"
"There is a strong interna-
tional evidence base that dem-
onstrates the important role
families play in post-opera-
tional transition, treatment
and recovery processes."
Having family members
actively participate in the pro-
cess will allow them to bet-
ter understand the purpose of
POPS and allow support staff
to provide advice to members
and families who may be facing
difficulties after a deployment.
Mr Morton said POPS
campaigns were an important
component of supporting and
promoting the positive mental
health and wellbeing of military
members after deployments.
"Early intervention and
assistance is linked with bet-
ter mental health outcomes,"
"POPS with a family
member is likely to provide
a forum for post-operational
issues to be identified earlier."
Those closest to soldiers can see the signs of stress
Units will move
AN $870 million Defence reloca-
tion project will soon get under way
to move units from Moorebank to
Holsworthy in NSW.
Defence Parliamentary Secretary
David Feeney has welcomed the
Government's approval of the reloca-
tion, which will result in 13 Army units
and four Defence facilities, including
the School of Military Engineering,
finding a new home.
The current buildings are on the site
of a future intermodal terminal.
Senator Feeney said the works
would include working, instructional,
support and living-in accommodation
to ensure all units were supported in
"The redeveloped facilities will
include a new area mess, a physical
fitness complex and new working facil-
ities for the Army Reserve's 5 Bde,"
Senator Feeney said.
The project will also establish a
new main barracks entry and security
arrangements, with the development
of a new, signalised entry point off
"These changes will also address
traffic congestion concerns in the area,
and separate the traffic destined for the
Holsworthy Barracks from that seeking
the Holsworthy Railway Station and
nearby residences," he said.
"We will see direct and indirect eco-
nomic benefits for Sydney's south-west
over the next three years, with con-
struction opportunities for businesses
of all sizes."
Relocation: An instructor from the School of Military Engineering supervises
students. The school will be moved from Moorebank to Holsworthy.
POPS is mandatory for
members and person-
nel and their families are
strongly encouraged to
discuss attending POPS
