Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
The United States National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R), conducted between February 2001 and April 2003, found that the estimated lifetime prevalence of PTSD among Vietnam Veterans was 30.9% for men and 26.9% for women.
About 1 in 5 women and 1 in 100 men seen in VA facilities respond “yes” when screened for military sexual trauma.
Substance Abuse Disorder
Veterans aged 18 to 25 are more likely than older Veterans to have higher rates of substance abuse disorder.
