To date the impact of the trek on participants and families has been excellent. The program has been independently evaluated by the Australian Centre for Post Traumatic Mental Health. The Trojan’s Trek Board is is keen to continue the program and convincing those who make decisions in this area, that this approach to military stress is a valuable adjunct to other methods of treatment. The philosophy of peer to peer support is sound and may have wider application within the military and other organizations.
How is Trojan’s Trek different from standard therapies and counseling?
Trojan’s trek is a circuit breaker program. Individuals will require follow-up treatment on completion. The differences between this program and conventional treatment may be summarized as follows:
- is culture specific,
- encourages group identity and experience sharing, involves veteran to veteran delivery,
- utilizes the remoteness and peace of the bush
- focuses is on individuals transference from “victim to warrior”, and
- includes providing partners with some understanding the illness.
