Researchers at Swansea University are investigating the link between Assistance Dogs and Quality of Life in British Military Veterans.
They are inviting people to complete a brief 20 minute survey asking you if you own a dog and your relationship with the dog. In addition, you will be asked to complete a series of questionnaires assessing various mental health and social support factors.
They are particularly interested for individuals with a current service/assistance dog, although you are encouraged to participate even if you do not have a dog. You must be a serving or ex-serving member of some form of military. All responses are completely anonymous.
This research has the potential to inform public policy to provide funding for the training and provision of psychiatric service/assistance dogs to veterans who need them.
