Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to develop the first longitudinal registry of combat-exposed men and women with posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD. This registry will provide essential data on the natural history and outcomes associated with PTSD in military service men and women who have utilized the Department of Veterans Affairs VA health care system. An additional goal of this project is to evaluate risk factors for PTSD among combat-exposed service men and women. Since September of 2010, data were collected on 265 men and 324 women. Of these participants, 75 met criteria for PTSD. To date, 765 phase 2 participants have completed.
