Resources for families living with a moral injury

‘Dad’s Moral Injury Cloud: Lara’s Story’ is a children’s book with an interactive module for parents. It was developed by Dr. Marg Rogers from the University of New England, along with many researchers, support workers, clinicians, and those with lived experience. The book and module contain videos that explain moral injury, information on its behavioural impacts, and ways to support people. They also provide information on where to find support in the UK, Canada, and Australia.
