Investigating the Impact of Life Experiences on Mental Wellbeing

10 December 2018

Trauma has long been linked to mental health problems. Our research study is looking into the impact of life experiences including traumatic events on our mental wellbeing. However, you do not need to have experienced trauma to take part. The aim is to better understand what factors may underpin this link which is important for developing and improving treatments.
