  1. Prevalence of mental disorder in military children and adolescents : findings from a two-stage community survey.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    Because previous reports have suggested that children of military families are at greater risk for psychopathology, this study examines the levels of psychopathology in an epidemiological community sample of military children all living on a military post.

    Method 

    Standardized psychopathology rating scales and a structured diagnostic interview (the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children [DISC], version 2.1) were used in a multimethod, multistage survey ; 294 six-to seventeen-year-old military children and their parents participated in the study.

    Results 

    Parent-and child-administered structured DSM-III-R DISC interviews indicated that children's levels of psychopathology were at levels consistent with studies of other normal samples.

    In addition, parents'and children's symptom checklist ratings of children were at national norms, as were parents'ratings of their own symptoms.

    Conclusions 

    Overall results do not support the notion that levels of psychopathology are greatly increased in military children.

    Further studies of military families should address the effects of rank and socioeconomic status, housing, and the current impact of life stressors on the parents as well as the children, in order to avoid drawing erroneous conclusions about parts or all of the military community.
