Drinking a Big Problem for British Troops in Afghanistan and Iraq

Montag 17. Mai 2010 von htm

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has plagued many U.S. veterans of the Afghan and Iraq wars, but for British troops alcohol abuse seems to be the bigger problem, Reuters reported May 13.
Researchers from King’s College London found that PTSD rates among U.K. troops are relatively stable, quelling fears of an epidemic of combat stress problems similar to that experienced by U.S. troops. However, rates of alcohol abuse, anxiety and depression were elevated among British soldiers, according to study leader Simon Wesserly. (Source: Join Together, 5/17/10)
