The MeT4VeT project is funded by the Forces in Mind Trust and aims to develop a mental health toolkit for veterans. This project proceeds the stigma and barriers to care study (See report here) which identified three core barriers that prevented veterans from seeking help for their mental health.
The research team has worked closely with veterans and stakeholders to develop the MeT4VeT app which aims to will help veterans overcome these barriers. The app aims to do in this in 3 ways:
- Provide education to help veterans understand mental health difficulties.
- Enable veterans to identify their own experiences of mental health and recognise when they may need support.
- Support veterans by giving them access to self-help tools and by providing details of organisations who can help them.
We are now looking for volunteers to test the app!
