Veteran Support Redefined

Swiss 8 is not just an organisation; it's a movement. Born from a deep commitment to service and enriched with the wisdom of experience, we're a tribe of veterans and partners dedicated to a singular mission: transforming mental health support for veterans. Our approach is rooted in lived experience, creating solutions that truly resonate.

Our Mission: To provide proactive mental health tools to Veterans and their families for free. 

Through Recalibr8, we encourage veterans to reclaim control, purpose, and joy in their lives. This program isn't just about coping—it's about thriving.

Why Us? Because we've walked this path. Swiss 8 stands at the intersection of firsthand understanding and innovative action. We bridge the gap with practical, accessible programs designed by veterans, for veterans.

Be Part of the Change: Swiss 8 challenges the status quo, advocating for a future where veterans are celebrated and supported beyond their service. Join us in this mission. Together, we can be the support our veterans deserve.

Veteran Support Redefined

The Problem Defined

Our veterans face a silent battle, one that's grown in the shadows of bureaucracy and misplaced priorities.

Abandoned by Big ESOs

Abandoned by Big ESOs

Large organizations like the RSL, intended to be pillars of support, have instead become monuments of inertia. Their vast resources often fail to reach the veterans most in need.

Government Inaction

Government Inaction

Despite decades of promises and commissions, the plight of our veterans remains a low priority. The Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide has shed light on this neglect, yet the response remains tepid.

The Generals' Club Disconnect

The Generals' Club Disconnect

Leadership within the veterans' support network is often out of touch with those it aims to serve. Run by retired high-ranking officers, these structures lack the lived experience necessary to truly understand and address the grassroots issues.

These systemic failures have left a gaping wound within our veteran community, leading to isolation, mental health decline, and an unacceptable suicide rate. Swiss 8 stands, armed with insight and determination to bring about the change our veterans deserve.

It's time for a new approach. One crafted by the reality of service, dedicated to practical, immediate solutions. 

Join us in turning the tide for our veterans.

Our
Solution

In 2018, Swiss 8 conducted a study to find the primary cause of mental health decline in Veterans. 

The results showed loss of identity, loss of purpose, no routine, and disconnection from tribe are the primary causes. 

PTSD, previously thought to be the primary cause, was below 6%. 

Tribe, Routine, Identity & Purpose (TRIP) are now fundamental to all solutions that we deliver.  More importantly, these are not Veterans specific issues, they are human issues.

In 2022, The University of Newcastle also conducted a study proving the Swiss 8 app reduces psychological distress in veterans.

Although our solution was a proven success, the lack of support from government and RSL has forced us to improvise and adapt, rebranding our tools under the Recalibr8 banner, giving access to all humans.

All donations to Swiss 8 now go directly to keeping the Recalibr8 Fundamentals course and Recalibr8 app free for Veterans.

During my time in the Australian Defence Force, I served in Afghanistan with Swiss 8 Founders, Adrian Sutter and Anthony Meixner. I can confidently say that this is one of the few organisations lead by Veterans who understand the core issues being addressed.
I am continuously impressed by the research focus Swiss 8 has adopted and will do everything in my power to ensure my colleagues in Canberra support Swiss 8

Adapting to Serve Our Veterans

When traditional funding avenues fell short, Swiss 8 met the challenge head-on, transforming obstacles into opportunities.

The Challenge: Swiss 8’s quest to deliver proactive mental health support encountered an unexpected hurdle: a funding landscape dominated by established entities resistant to change. Despite the proven effectiveness of our programs, securing financial backing from traditional sources—government bodies and large veteran organizations—proved arduous.

The Response: In the face of this, Swiss 8 pivoted, embracing a social enterprise model under the brand Recalibr8. This bold move was designed to democratize funding, inviting the public to directly support our mission. Now, every purchase of Recalibr8 products fuels our ability to offer them to veterans at no cost.

Your support is more than a donation—it's an investment in a veteran's future.

Adapting to Serve Our Veterans

My husband's life was in chaos when he retired from football. It was his life for 18 years. When he struggled with depression, it felt like talking about it was the only thing people would advise. Recalibr8 gave him physical tasks that he could do in his own time. It gave him order in his chaos. Now our relationship is the strongest it has ever been.
