Understanding veterans’ reintegration into civilian life after active service
We have been contacted by a psychology MSc (conversion) candidate / student from the University of Surrey, that is currently researching
veterans' reintegration after service.
The study involves talking to veterans who have served at least one active tour of duty in Afghanistan and/or Iraq since 2001 and who have been discharged from the Armed Forces (any branch) for at least 6 months.
The subject of this investigation is these veterans’ experiences of reintegration following discharge, whether easy or difficult, ongoing or completed. lf you would be interested in taking part, please click on the link below:
