Research into veteran fathers’ mental health and that of their children

King Edward Hospital logo

The Centre for Veterans’ Health at King Edward Vii’s Hospital in London is carrying out research into the relationship between the mental health of veteran fathers and the mental health of their children. 

The work is being done in collaboration with University College London and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.  We want to understand more about the important father-child relationship, so we can develop more effective ways to help veterans who are struggling with their mental health while also trying to raise their children.

We are looking for veterans who have one or more children between the ages of 4 and 17 years to fill in some questionnaires online that will take around 20 minutes to complete.  You or your child(ren) do not need to have any mental health problems to take part in the research. 

Once you’ve completed the questionnaires, your e-mail address will be entered into a lottery and you could win up to £50 in amazon vouchers.  

If you are interested and would like more information, please email the researchers, Benjamin Shanmugam or Emma Jones, at [email protected] or Dr. Louise Morgan, Lead Researcher at the Centre for Veterans’ Health, at [email protected].

Thank you!
