Peer Support Model for Families of ex-Service Personnel with Substance Use Problems
Earlier this year, Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), Adfam and the University of York announced their collaboration on a 15-month research project to develop a peer support model for families of ex-Service personnel with substance use problems.
Through a review of existing literature and conducting interviews, focus groups and online surveys, the research aims to better understand the experiences and needs of the families of veterans who have substance use problems. Ex-Service personnel with substance use problems, families of veterans with substance use problems and various service providers (including Splendour Wellness) will also contribute to this project.
Starting today, the online survey is available.
If you are a family member of a former member of the UK Armed Forces with a substance use problem and would like to share your first-hand experiences, please take part in the online survey - http://bit.ly/family-veterans-survey. The survey will take about 45 minutes to complete. All findings will be used to develop a new peer support model for military families affected by substance misuse.
