(b) Explore and provide meaningful and positive education opportunities for first responders, past and present, and their families, to better support them all, and

4. Support the establishment of a National First Responder Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission, to provide greater command, communication, coordination and leadership of effort, to complement the Defence and Veteran’s Suicide Commission.
