KCMHR is the leading civilian UK centre of excellence for military health research and 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.
Our research has contributed to changes on government domestic policy towards military personnel. These are:
- Mental health provision for reservists entitling them the same care after deployment as their regular counterparts
- Contributed to evidence to change the policy of how anthrax vaccinations are offered
Our objectives relate to the three main areas:
- War and health
- War and psychiatry
- Personnel issues and social policy
