Request for expressions of interest

Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) has issued a request for expressions of interest (REOI) to conduct a review of the latest evidence concerning the mental health needs of UK serving and ex-Service personnel and their families.

The review will also include the perspectives of key stakeholders within the context of various recent documents concerning the mental health and veteran field, from across the MOD, NHS and Academia.

The FiMT award is expected to be between £50,000 – £100,000 to produce a documented, systematic review of relevant high-quality literature on the current scientific environment and changes and gaps in evidence concerning the field of serving and ex-Serving personnel’s (and their families’) mental health.

The review will be used to focus FiMT’s mental health research programme and to provide a clear knowledge landscape for policy makers, service providers and researchers working in this field.  It will be freely accessible through the FiMT Research Centre and its embedded Veterans and Families Research Hub.
