Can we send soldiers to war and have them come home intact, unaffected by their war service? What about their families?

Dr Brian O'Toole runs Australia's most significant long-term studies on combat, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the psychiatric health of returned servicemen and their families.

Dr O'Toole will present findings from his study that commenced in the late 1980s, updates on his latest study into the effects of combat on the partners and children of returned servicemen.
