The Mental Health Advisory Team 9 (MHAT 9) Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) 2013 Afghanistan report (PDF) was publicly released last week. Some of the key findings in the report:

  • Significant rise in reports of individual and unit morale relative to 2012, but comparable to 2009.
  • Rates of Soldiers meeting criteria for any psychological problem ( acute stress, depression, or anxiety ) are significantly lower than rates reported in 2009 and 2010.
  • Suicidal Ideation : Rates of suicidal ideation are significantly lower than rates reported in 2009 and 2010.
  • Sleep Problems : Soldier concerns about sleep are significantly lower relative to 2012; however those with high concerns consistently report increased psychological problems and accidents.
  • Concussive Events : Self-reported rates of exposure to blast continue to decline; percent reporting evaluation by medic following blast increased . However, there still remains a relatively high proportion of Soldiers who report not receiving a medical evaluation after concussive events.
