Military mental health was a top priority for doctors at last week's APA Annual Meeting. Elspeth C. Ritchie, M.D., M.P.H., and Marvin A. Oleshansky, M.D., (back) chaired a symposium on Evaluating and Treating the Effects of War at the American Psychiatric Association 164th Annual Meeting. Also presenting were CPT Michelle Hornbaker, M.D.; John C. Bradley, M.D.; Brett Schneider, M.D., and Scott C. Moran, M.D. Research about PTSD, the impact of deployment on families, and treatment of serious mental illnesses were among many topics addressed.
