Abstract:

This study investigated whether CCATT members were at increased risk for incident post-deployment mental health conditions. A retrospective cohort study of 604 CCATT members without preexisting mental health conditions who had at least one deployment as a CCATT member during 2003-2012 as compared to a control group of 604 non-CCATT medical personnel, frequency matched based on job role. The incidence of post-deployment mental health conditions was 2.1 per 1,000 months for the CCATT group versus 2.2 per 1,000 months for the control group. Females were at marginally increased risk and nurses and technicians were at twice the risk of physicians.
