Abstract:

A newly released Army study on behavioral health shows a decline in soldier suicides and more seeking treatment for their problems. Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, Army vice chief of staff, discussed the findings of the report, Generating Health and Discipline in the Force, Ahead of the Strategic Reset, at a Pentagon news conference yesterday. The three-year study outlines the problem of suicide in the Army and related issues of substance abuse, spouse abuse and child abuse.
