Mental health problems have been studied in a total of 2201 consultations with British troops in a primary health care practice on Operation Resolute (Bosnia) from 1 January to 31 March 1996.
About one in 40 (2.5%) of the consultations were for mental health problems ; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depressive disorder, and grief reaction were the most common disorders, followed by acute adjustment reaction and panic disorder.
Most cases pre-dated deployment.
The number of cases repatriated to the UK was 17, about 10% of the total number of patients repatriated from theatre in this period.
