Veterans' Wellness Research Center

Approximately 22 million veterans live in the U.S. today, more than 17 million of whom served during wartime. The stress and trauma of war can have a powerful effect on service members’ health and well-being.

To help our veterans, Arizona State University has established the Veterans' Wellness Research Center in 2015 to conduct research and support vets affected by combat-related stress and trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Lead by Mary Davis in the Department of Psychology, the center draws together experts from a variety of disciplines across the university and its partner organizations to contribute in four areas: 

  • basic science research
  • prevention and intervention research
  • policy research
  • education and outreach
