On 14 September 2017, the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, the Hon Dan Tehan announced that the Australian Government is working on a trial to evaluate the mental health benefits of assistance dogs for veterans with PTSD.  The Minister said that the trial would enable the collection of evidence to inform future policy considerations to help the Government continue to meet the mental health needs of veterans.  The Minister’s announcement is at:

DVA is seeking a suitably experienced and qualified organisation or consortium of organisations to conduct a four-year trail (the Trial) of psychiatric dogs as an adjunct to treatment for veterans with clinically diagnosed PTSD.  This REOI is the first stage of a planned two stage procurement process to engage a service provider to design and implement the Trial.
