Abstract:

The evidence suggest that retirement from the military may pose a psychiatric problem for some, even before the actual retirement commences. The effects of these troubles on functioning in retirement are important ones and health care facilities with any institutional relationship to a retired population might attend to the parameters affecting incidence and prevalence of problems in that population. These institutions might expect increased psychiatric caseloads and prepare for work with depression, alcoholism and schizophrenia. Factors which facilitate transition to the retired role with minimal difficulties are clearly defined. Author
