Abstract:

The fifth Mental Health Advisory Team MHAT was established by the Office of the U.S. Army Surgeon General. Historically, teams have been formed to support requests from the Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq MNF-I however, for MHAT V the request from MNFI-I was augmented by a request from the Service Chief, Army Central Command ARCENT to examine Soldiers in Afghanistan and Kuwait. The current MHAT report contains two separate reports - one for Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF which includes a section on Soldiers in Kuwait, and one for Operation Enduring Freedom OEF.The mission of MHAT V was to 1. Assess Soldier mental health and well-being 2. Examine the delivery of behavioral health care in Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF 3. Provide recommendations for sustainment and improvement to command. Both of the reports have executive summaries providing key findings and recommendations specific to OIF and OEF. Partial contents of these reports include the following topics Morale, Mental Health, Performance and Ethical Behavior Sustainment of Soldier Resilience Strengthening Families Behavioral Health Care in Theater Increase in the Number of Behavioral Health Personnel Soldier Behavioral Health and Performance Indices Soldier Risk Factors Soldier Protective Factors Soldier Focus Groups Behavioral Health Care System Assessment Primary Care Survey Unit Ministry Team Survey Military Transition Teams Mental Health and Welfare Soldiers Stationed in Kuwait Theater Suicide and Suicide Prevention.
