“Because we realised that 80 per cent of our soldiers have been involved in this recovery programme, they are getting better. Their outlook on life is positive. You know, when you are engaged in, you experience a permanent disability. Some issues affect the mental health and outlook to life.

“But the recovery programme has given them an opportunity to improve their personal self-esteem to improve their mental health, and their emotional intelligence has improved.
