Army soldiers and civilian wives/girlfriends who are eligible will be invited to complete a confidential online survey that takes approximately one hour. The survey contains 500 to 550 mostly multiple choice questions about personal things such as combat experience, relationships and mental health. The results will help us learn more about what military couples are experiencing after deployment and how we can better support them.
All information that you submit is completely confidential.
You will be taken to a short questionnaire to determine whether or not you are eligible for the study. If qualified, you will receive an email with your next step instructions.
We are currently trying to expand our eligibility criteria. If you do not currently meet the eligibility requirements and would like to be notified if the criteria changes, please submit your email address below.
