Nathan Bolton was a Special Operations Engineer deploying twice to Afghanistan as part of the Australian Special Forces. He worked alongside some of the toughest and most elite soldiers in the world, supporting the Commandos and the SAS as they landed time and time again into hostile enemy territory.
After his second tour, the stress and the pressure of the job was a heavy burden on Nathan and he was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Major Depression. A battle that almost took his life.
But the soldier in Nathan kept fighting and through years of hard work and a firm belief in a better life, Nathan made a profound recovery. He now shares his incredible story, reminding us that even in our darkest hour, when all hope seems lost, recovery is possible.
In it’s wake, Nathan and his brother Daniel established Bolton Brothers, a psychology company committed to changing the face of male mental health. Through a gendered approach, their goal is to educate, inspire and empower men to increase mental health awareness, improve mental health literacy and seek psychological support during times of need.
Nathan supports the walk every year by taking part in the full distance event. He is an inspiring person with a special story to tell.
