OPEN DOOR Veteran Transition Integration Wellbeing

Our research

Our research is multidisciplinary, applied and theoretical and includes:

  • key service provision challenges (claims, case work, crisis care)
  • key policy challenges (including institutional abuse, veteran suicide or veterans in correction)
  • social, cultural and historical research on Defence and Veterans Affairs legislation, policy and service provision
  • clinical and cognitive psychological evidence and practice
  • new approaches for veterans with transition challenges, traumatic stress injuries and moral injury.

Open Door believes the best source of evidence on veteran issues are veterans.

We adopt a co-design approach that draws upon the lived experiences of veterans across the services. Our team includes veteran researchers and policy experts.
