  1. The mental health status of women in the Navy and Marine corps : Preliminary findings from the Perceptions of Wellness and Readiness assessment.

    Article - En anglais

    The 1995 Perceptions of Wellness and Readiness Assessment was designed to provide baseline health and risk-factor information on the physical and mental health status of women in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps and to make comparisons both within military subpopulations and with civilian populations.

    A population-based, multi-stage, cluster sample of 782 active duty Navy and Marine Corps women and men were administered a structured computerized telephone interview to make Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-III-R psychiatric diagnoses.

    Estimates were 40 and 21% for overall lifetime and 1-year prevalence of psychiatric disorders, respectively.

    Women had about five times the risk of experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder than men and about twice the risk of a major depressive episode.

    Of all personnel meeting diagnostic criteria for an active mental disorder, only 19% sought mental health care in the last year.

    Women generally sought treatment more readily than men.
