Summarizes key findings and recommendations from Invisible Wounds of War: Psychological and Cognitive Injuries, Their Consequences, and Services to Assist Recovery (Tanielian and Jaycox [Eds.], MG720CCF, 2008), a comprehensive study of the post deployment health related needs associated with posttraumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury among veterans of Operations Enduring Freedom/Iraqi Freedom.
Since October 2001, approximately 1.64 million U.S. troops have been deployed forOperations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) in Afghanistan andIraq. Early evidence suggests that the psychological toll of these deployments-manyinvolving prolonged exposure to combat-related stress over multiple rotations-maybe disproportionately high compared with the physical injuries of combat. Concernshave been most recently centered on two combat-related injuries in particular: posttraumaticstress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Many recent reports have referredto these as the signature wounds of the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. With theincreasing concern about the incidence of suicide and suicide attempts among returningveterans, concern about depression is also on the rise.
