‘Left picking up the pieces’: A former army doctor shares his story

GP Dr Phil Parker was in the Army for 28 years and is now raising the alarm over veterans' mental health
Dr Phil Parker.

“I’ve had many veterans tell me that they would have ended their life if it wasn’t for the care that I provided them. I’m quite honoured that I had a role in saving them.” 

This is Dr Phil Parker, a Brisbane GP who dedicates most of his time to helping returned servicemen and women rebuild their lives, and themselves, after re-joining civilian life.
