What is PTSD?

PTS is contracted when the human brain is subjected to some sort of adverse experience, tragic event or fear that it wasn’t built to withstand. Many humans can be subjected to events which can cause this condition. In fact, nearly all of us can experience some sort of event which will challenge our senses. This can have just a short term affect or it can be long lasting, depending on the person and the event.

Stand Tall Founder: Tony Dell


Tony Dell was a national serviceman in 1966 to 1968 and deployed to Vietnam with 2RAR in 1967/68. On his return he played five seasons of Sheffield Shield cricket with Queensland and was lucky enough to play two test matches for Australia with Ian Chappell as his captain.

“I saw things in Vietnam that the human brain is not meant to experience…” Tony Dell

Forty years after he got home from Vietnam he was diagnosed with PTS and only then did he realise the reasons for the multitude of things that had gone wrong in his life. He then qualified to receive a TPI pension and after being told there was a stipulation of only being allowed to work just eight hours a week he decided to set up a not for profit entity to create national awareness for PTS and in so doing help to reduce the stigma, help to educate our youth and encourage governments to do more.
