Abstract
This symposium will provide an update on the Transition and Wellbeing Research Programme, a comprehensive suite of studies examining the mental, physical and social health of current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families. Data collection was finalised in February 2016 and data analysis and report writing is currently underway. These three presentations will provide important contextual background to this programme of research as well as an overview of study progress and lessons learnt to date. It will also provide a detailed overview of the research questions addressed by this study and the importance and relevance of these findings to the provision of services and support for current and ex-serving ADF members.
