We are working to learn more about the support needs of Veterans in Northern Ireland. To achieve this, in 2015, Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) commissioned a team of researchers based in Northern Ireland to conduct a large-scale study into the Health and Wellbeing of Veterans living in Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Veterans’ Health and Wellbeing Study (NIVHWS) is a unique large-scale tri-service research project funded by the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and the Big Lottery Fund. The study began in 2015 and is being conducted by Prof Chérie Armour and a team of researchers from the Psychology Research Institute at Ulster University in partnership with the Northern Ireland Veterans Support Committee (NIVSC). It will run for a period of four years; completing in 2019.
