Recognizing And Treating Depression

Sleep Problems

Depression can affect your body as well as your mind. Trouble falling or staying asleep is common in people who are depressed. But some may find that they get too much shut-eye.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

It's natural to worry during stressful times. But some people feel tense and anxious day after day, even when there is little to worry about. When this lasts for six months or longer, it may be generalized anxiety disorder or GAD. This illness affects nearly seven million Americans. Unfortunately, many people don't know they have it. So they can miss out on treatments that may lead to a better life.

This report presents the findings of the Rwanda Deployment Health Study, a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) funded study conducted by the Centre for Australian Military and Veterans’ Health (CAMVH).

The purpose of the study was to determine the health and compensation history of veterans of the Rwanda deployment (Operation TAMAR [Troops and Medical Aid Rwanda], hereafter Op TAMAR) and differences between subgroups of the cohort.

The aims of the study are to increase understanding of contemporary veterans’ longterm health and compensation and provide insights into the use of existing data to research veterans’ health.

The study collected, reconciled, developed and conducted exploratory analysis of data from Defence personnel and medical records, DVA compensation datasets and a National Death Index linkage.

CAMVH has produced an accurate nominal roll for the deployment, developed a framework for the extraction and analysis of medical records data and established a mortality study for the cohort.

Who Cares For The Carer?

The Dunt Review 1 into mental health services in the Australian Defence Force (ADF) enabled significant

investment in programs and initiatives across the defence environment in Australia. The subsequent attention

to long standing mental health issues for our veteran community is both timely and admirable, and has indeed

begun to address mental health stigma, education and community support around this country.
