Abstract:

Mental health admission rates for those with no active mental health disorders have shown to have no correlation with age, except with young adults 18-25 with no mental health history which have the largest incidence of inpatient admissions. The U.S. Air Force is predominantly made up of this demographic and almost exclusively within its Basic Training population. This study investigated the incidence of inpatient psychiatric admissions of U.S. Air Force Basic Military Trainees over a 12 month period comparative to U.S. inpatient psychiatric admissions rates of the same demographic.
