OPERATIONAL MENTAL HEALTH
Service members returning from deployment may be at increased risk for some mental health outcomes including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depressive disorder (MDD), alcohol/substance abuse, and suicide attempt/ideation. The Deployment Health Division within the EpiData Center Department, using deployment personnel records, has developed methodologies to monitor these outcomes within medical encounter records, prescription drug transactions, and deployment health assessments before and after deployments.
