Editorial Reviews

Review

The wounds described in 'Invisible Wounds of War'; are, of course, the mental health problems of military personnel; specifically, the book summarises a study of US personnel deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan ... Its strength lies in a comprehensive and clearly defined review that is well distilled into key facts... Overall, this is not the easiest of reads, but it is doubtful one would expect a cocktail of mental health, geopolitics, and health economics to be so. What it does well is advance a set of problems, attempt to quantify them, and to suggest how the state may be able to address them. This has to be a core text for anybody in the field of military mental health, its lessons are universally applicable.
he Lancet, Vol 372, November 15, 2008

From the Inside Flap

A comprehensive study of the post-deployment health-related needs associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury among servicemembers returning from Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, based on a recent (2007-08) RAND study is, so far, the best look we have into what we, as a nation, and what we as mental health providers are likely to be facing over the next half century.

The study lays out three "signature injuries" of the Iraq/Afghanistan war -- PTSD, depression, and TBI or traumatic brain injury (formerly known as closed head injury). Yes, the study has severe limitations, which to their credit, they acknowledge. As a mental health provider working regularly with soldiers from this war and working a lot with the families of soliders from this war, it's my strong guess that their phone interviews grossly underestimate the prevalance of all three injuries. And their prevalence rates -- 14% for PTSD; 14% for major depression, and scariest of all, 19% for TBI -- are truly sobering. This alone totals to over a third of a million young men & women.

The reasons I believe for underestimates are not only my work with "supposedly" non-PTSD, TBI & major depression soliders. It's also 1. knowing how difficult it is for soldiers to admit to these problems, because it so goes against the grain of their own self-perceptiions & hopes and of the necessary military culture, 2. because of the tragically lingering & sometimes horrendous prejudices still against soliders admitting to PTSD (I know, for example, of a solider who was shamed, this within the last few months (2008), by his commanding officer and in front of his fellow soliders), 3. lingering misperceptions on what PTSD, depression and TBI are & what they mean, 4. I have never seen a TBI that didn't go toward major depression & PTSD once it became clear to the person what the on-going deficits & limitations were, and 5.

As an author there is a lot of research that readers don't always see, but this book was more than just research, it was a lesson in thankfulness and understanding.
