Cameron Grant is drawing on his experiences and support networks during the transition from the military to PhD studies. His research will focus on how military identity affects help-seeking behaviour in veterans with mental health concerns.
“My research will be looking at what enables and motivates veterans to seek help when they have mental health concerns. The question is what flips the switch from inaction or avoidance of help-seeking to active help-seeking.”
“I hope to build a model that can explain help-seeking behaviours of veterans. Once we know what factors cause help-seeking behaviour, we can create practical interventions to increase help-seeking.”
Cameron will be conducting his studies at Flinders University and in partnership with the Military and Emergency Services Health Australia (MESHA).
