The Veteran Mental Health Unit is committed to improving the support provided to our returned service personnel and their families. Recognising that there is a psychological and physical toll of military service as well as a toll on relationships and families, GMRF are refining the most appropriate assessments and effective therapies for veterans and their partners in several studies.
