Stand Tall 4 PTS

Anyone Can Be Affected by PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) is one of the single biggest health problems in Australia. It affects up to 1.5 million Australians in some form. If we then apportion seven family members and friends to each of the 1.5 million, almost half of our population suffers from a knock-on effect, and most of them cannot comprehend why.

Who We Are

Stand Tall for PTS was founded in 2011 by Tony Dell who had spent nearly a year in Vietnam as a national serviceman with 2RAR in 1967 / 1968. For the next forty years he suffered the affects of PTSD without know the reasons why.

What We Do

Since 2015, after a very slow start, Stand Tall has achieved much. We believe that we are now, arguably, the foremost totally volunteer entity in this PTSD space.


Since 2011 Stand Tall for PTS has garnered support from all corners of the globe and from a wide range of people equally interested in the treatment of PTSD and the welfare of those afflicted by it.
PTS is one of the least understood health conditions by the general public and even the medical fraternity. And, unfortunately at this stage, the Federal Government provides negligible support for what is the costliest health problem we have. In short, in Australia, we are experiencing a growing crisis. We need to do something about this, and do it now!
