Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
5 year


This study will conduct a third wave of assessments to examine the long-term consequences of being directly exposed to 9/11 as a child (ages 0-17), including mental and physical health, subsequent adult development, role functioning, relationships, independence and parenting. Using the largest and most thoroughly characterized longitudinal cohort of 9/11 directly exposed children and their controls, this study is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to mitigate potential negative consequences and to improve well-being, as well as to increase understanding of what to intervene on to improve the lives of children exposed to other mass traumas in the future.
