Partisans Australia MMC Inc
Partisans Australia MMC is a Military motorcycle club, unique in the sense that we solely focus on assisting Veterans with PTSD and other related mental health issues.
We also allow female members, we believe that females have signed the same contract as the guys to serve their country and suffer like the guys with mental health related to their service.
We also allow civilian members. Our goal of helping Vets should not be done in isolation. To fight this battle we need the civilian population to get involved and what we have found is ALOT of people see the struggles our vets are going through and desperately want to help.
We do however ensure that our club designates our serving and ex-serving members differently than our civil members. Above is our service patch which is worn on the top left corner of the vest. This can only be issued once a member has produced their military record to prove their service. Same goes for the medals only those of a military nature can be worn and only those that the member has proven they have been awarded.
Our civil members are encouraged if they have a family member who they wish to honor to wear their medals on the right side.
Partisans club name was chosen to highlight what the club is about, the very meaning of the word Partisan represents the coming together of military and civilian populations in a common goal of defeating its enemy, in this case PTSD.

Things People Say!
Danni of Country Victoria says
" Im so proud to know all of you wonderful partisans and supporters. You are all one big family who work together to support such a wonderful cause. I have never served but I am a general practice nurse and I have also worked a little in mental health and seeing both sides, the supporters and the in need of support. it is truly amazing to see such a devoted bunch of people banding together to support and raise awareness for a very deserving group of people."
Jason of Victoria says,
"A proud member, supporting my brothers and sisters who served.
Been absent due to mental health issue myself, not PTSD but still a daily struggle.
We all have issues and the club stands for exactly that, glad so many people see the unseen."
Shane, President of Central Vic Chapter says,
"I am an ex service member 26 squadron and I proudly ride and raise awareness and support our Veterans shoulder to shoulder with all our non service members in our club"
Carmen and Brad of Victoria Says,
We have never served, we have had family who have but never been in a position to serve ourselves, we have always supported people who have. Dawn service has been a major part of our lives and we highly respect those who have served for our freedom.
We have recently moved to the peninsula and our circle of family has grown 10 fold since meeting the amazing men and women who are involved in Partisans ... your passion shines through in everything you guys put your minds too and that passion makes other people excited, which means the club’s objective reaches even more people. I have never served, but I’m a pharmacist who has many patients who are vets ... iv seen the ones the government help a bit, the ones they help a little and the ones they don’t help at all ... what’s really missing is those people who may not have a visible physical injury or an official diagnosis of PTSD , the support system for people who just find it hard to integrate again or don’t feel 100% normal living a civilian life just isn’t there and that’s why a club like partisans is so important, no-one is left out, everyone gets support in whatever way they need, whether it be through funds raised or merely a social ride with like minded people. I am so proud to wear my Partisans T wherever I go and loudly inform people of what we stand for. The club is called Partisans, but to be a Partisan is so much more than just the name. We aspire to be members of the club as we wholeheartedly support and stand behind everything that they do.
