Sexually Traumatized Veterans May Have An Increased Risk Of Homelessness

Reuters (4/20, Seaman) reports that US veterans who suffered sexual trauma during military service may have an increased risk of homelessness, the findings of a 601,892-veteran study published online in JAMA Psychiatry suggest.

According to HealthDay (4/20, Preidt), the study “also found that among veterans with military sexual trauma, men were at greater risk for homelessness than women.” An accompanying editorial called for “a change of culture within the military.”
