We are currently looking for Veterans to take part in one of the following workshops. This is the final study in a project that looks to talk with NZ veterans and their whānau to brainstorm solutions to decreasing harmful veteran drinking behaviour. We are first looking to recruit veterans of the NZ Defence Forces who have served in deployments, from the 1990 Gulf War onwards, that have been declared to be qualifying operational service for the purposes of the Veterans’ Support Act 2014 – a member of the armed forces who took part in qualifying operational service at the direction of the New Zealand Government. However, we are also looking for ex-serving personnel that do not meet these criteria. 

The workshop details are as follows:

1) 12pm-4pm on November 28th in Auckland (at the University of Auckland), OR

2) 12pm-4pm on November 29th in Palmerston North (at Massey University in Palmerston North).

The workshops will be catered, and participants will receive a $50 voucher. Parking is also provided.

If you or someone you know is able to take part in one of the workshops please contact us directly to take part in the research or gain more information.
