Attention Native American Veterans: Survey on PTSD

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown June 4th, 2015 Last Updated on: June 4th, 2015


Greg Urquhart is a Cherokee Veteran of Iraq and a current graduate student at Washington State University. He has asked us to help share information on a survey he is currently carrying out about Native American veterans, and their perceptions of and attitudes towards Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Can you help pass along this survey to anyone who might be eligible to take the survey?

Mr. Urquhart tells us the survey is open to anyone who is Native American and who has served in the military. They do not need to have been deployed or to have PTSD to participate in the survey. For more information please read below.

We would like to request your participation with a survey for Native American veterans who may have experienced combat-related stress or know others who have. Our intent with this survey is to increase the body of knowledge about Native American veterans and their attitudes and perceptions towards PTSD and its treatment. This information will contribute to increasing the body of knowledge about Native American Veterans. Your answers on the survey will be helpful to us in achieving this goal. The Washington State University Institutional Review Board has certified the study as meeting exempt status. All participants and their responses will be kept confidential.

The research team includes graduate students in counseling psychology at Washington State University, several of whom are Native American veterans and individuals experienced in working with veterans and Native American veterans. This study is being supervised by Dr. Phyllis Erdman, Professor in counseling psychology at Washington State University. We are interested in this area because of our personal experience with military service and a commitment to helping those who may suffer from the effects of combat.

We appreciate your time and thank you in advance for your help. Also, if you know of others who may be interested in this survey please feel free to forward the link to them. Please click below to access the survey. If you have questions regarding this request, you may contact Greg Urquhart at ([email protected]).
