Post-deployment screening, personalized advice ineffective in UK military

February 21, 2017

Postdeployment screening for PTSD, depression, anxiety and alcohol abuse based on tailored advice was not effective among military personnel in the U.K.

“The drive to implement mental health screening arises from findings that at least half of military personnel with a probable mental disorder do not seek help, many seek help too late, chronicity is associated with slower recovery, screening might help to overcome stigma associated with mental disorder, and government-supported screening programs show a commitment to providing preventive services to military personnel returning from deployment,” Roberto J Rona, FFPH, of King’s Centre for Military Health Research in London, and colleagues wrote. “However, so far, no randomized controlled trial has assessed the effectiveness of screening or its effect on help-seeking behavior.”
