Event description

Description

Psychological trauma affected many of the men who served on the Front line, both during and after service. Yet, it was not just men who suffered – what of those nurses who treated the injured? What of the horrifying experiences they underwent?

These themes will be explored during an afternoon of talks, which will also analyse the legacy of mental health wellbeing in the armed forces to the present day.

There will also be an opportunity to learn about the documents we hold here at The National Archives which relate to mental health and the First World War, including a display of original archival material.

This exciting event will bring together the eminent speakers Edgar Jones, Matthew Green, and Denise Poynter to reflect on this important topic and its contemporary relevance.
