This report details work that is part of the Northern Ireland Veterans Health and Wellbeing Study (NIVHWS). The psychological wellbeing study is a survey that provides information on respondents’ favourable and unfavourable military experiences, physical and mental health and mental health service utilisation and help-seeking.
The NIVHWS survey has collected vast amounts of quantitative date which over time will solidify a concrete evidence base upon which appropriate services can be developed and implemented to support veterans residing in NI. These results can therefore be used as a locally focused resource by clinicians, policy makers, and funders of key services which aim to support veterans residing in NI.
