Midland Reporter - - News -

A ONE-OF-A-KIND ser­vice in For­rest­field that is help­ing vet­er­ans bat­tling post­trau­matic stress dis­or­der and sub­stance abuse has been of­fered a life­line.

The Men’s Health Peer Ed­u­ca­tion (MHPE) pro­gram was forced to close its doors ear­lier this year when the For­rest­field Fo­rum was re­de­vel­oped.

Hasluck MHR Ken Wy­att has made a room in his For­rest­field of­fice avail­able tem­po­rar­ily to group each Thurs­day from 9-1pm.

Mr Wy­att said he knew there had to be some­thing he could do when he heard the group had no place to meet.

“The work that Men’s Health Peer Ed­u­ca­tion does is ir­re­place­able and I would like to thank all the hard-work­ing mem­bers for the hours they spend pro­vid­ing sup­port for our vet­er­ans,” he said.
