IOM Report: Programs to Prevent Psychological Disorders in Military Members

A new report from the Institute of Medicine, released on Thursday, assessed “efforts to evaluate and improve psychological health services for military members and their families.” The review panel said that DOD, “…should develop, track, and evaluate programs based on scientific evidence to ensure their effectiveness… DOD has implemented numerous resilience and prevention programs — mostly focused on individual-level interventions — that address various aspects of psychological health.  While some of these programs have demonstrated effectiveness, many are not evidence-based and are evaluated infrequently.”
