Online Seminar Series - March 2021

Organised by the King’s Centre for Military Health Research with support from the Forces in Mind Trust. Bringing together leading academics, researchers, medical professionals and charities to discuss the key issues in military mental health.

The King's Centre for Military Health Research is the leading civilian UK centre of excellence for military health research and is independent of the UK Ministry of Defence. Our work has help shape government policy towards military personnel with our research published in high impact journals such as the British Medical Journal and The Lancet.

The Centre is co-directed by Professor Simon Wessely and Professor Nicola Fear. The Centre draws on the experience of a multi-disciplinary team with a wide range of research portfolios. The aim of the Centre is to produce relevant scientific research at the highest level. The Centre also offers a MSc in War and Psychiatry.
