OPTIMISING MENTAL HEALTH AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR AUSTRALIA’S MILITARY PERSONNEL AND VETERANS WITH PTSD
Grant number: 1110932 | Funding period: 2015 - 2021
Military personnel can experience a range of traumatic events throughout their careers, and many develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result. Effective treatments for PTSD are available but involve seeing a mental health professional weekly for several months, which can be a difficult commitment for many military personnel and veterans to make. This project investigates whether standard treatment for PTSD is as effective when it’s delivered intensively in a shorter period of time.
