Student Profile

Rob Densmore

I have been a frontline journalist covering the war in Afghanistan since 2006. I have been a veteran of that war for even longer. There are pressing psychiatric and psychosocial issues that the public and the media have only recently found words to express. Even still, there is a tremendous gulf between what we read in our newspapers and what troops are experiencing on the front lines. I travelled half way around the world because King’s College London offered me a chance to understand what is happening to the psychiatric health of our military. There simply were no alternatives in the US, or anywhere else as far as I am concerned. My stories always begin and end with the human element. With the ’War and Psychiatry’ MSc I now have the scientific background to give full breadth to those stories.
