…Mental Disorders and Mental Health Problems, Active Component, U.S. Armed Forces, January 2000 – December 2009, is part of the Pentagon’s latest Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, which tracks medical issues of interest to the U.S. military. It’s grim reading. “The report…documents striking increases – mostly since 2003 – in the numbers and rates of diagnoses of most categories of mental disorders,” it says. “Together, the findings of this and other reports in this issue of the MSMR document a large, widespread, and growing mental health problem among U.S. military members.”
Maybe it’s from all that banging their heads against brick walls for seven years?
