Mental Disorders Among OEF/OIF Veterans Using VA Health Care: Facts and Figures


The mental health of veterans-and particularly veterans of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF)-has been a topic of ongoing concern to Members of Congress and their constituents, as evidenced by hearings and legislation. Knowing the number of veterans affected by various mental disorders and actions the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking to address mental disorders can help Congress determine where to focus attention and resources. Using data from the VA, this brief report addresses the number of veterans with (1) depression or bipolar disorder, (2) posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and (3) substance use disorders; Appendix A discusses important data limitations. For each topic, this report also briefly describes what the VA is doing in terms of screening and treatment; Appendix B lists reports evaluating the VA's efforts.
