This chapter charts a pathway from the early days of the Troubles and the efforts to understand the mental health impact of the violence. D. O'Reilly and Des Browne reported upon the Northern Ireland Health and Social Wellbeing Survey of 1997 focusing on health service use. In 2002, P. McConnell reported upon their epidemiological study of mental health disorders and needs for treatment of the general population in the city of Derry/Londonderry. Between 2008 and 2012 a partnership of the Northern Ireland Centre for Trauma and Transformation and the Psychology Research Institute at Ulster University published a series of studies that examined the mental and associated physical health impact of the Troubles. The Commission for Victims and Survivors for Northern Ireland (CVSNI) was established in 2008, following the passing of legislation by the Northern Ireland Assembly in 2006.
