Mental Health Problems May Be Common Among Civilian Workers In War Zones.

HealthDay (4/11, Preidt) reports that according to a study recently published in the journal Social Psychology Quarterly, “mental health problems are common among civilians who work for the US military in war zones.” Researchers found that “workers who experienced a higher number of life-threatening events had more frequent symptoms of mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and anger.” In addition, the study revealed that “civilian workers’ mental health became progressively worse as they faced an increasing number of threats.”
