  • Military Readiness—Soldier Wellness Assessment at Ft Lewis, Madigan Army Medical Center used a multidisciplinary team to develop a comprehensive assessment program for soldiers deploying and those returning from deployment. They were triaged for 15, 30 or 60 minute behavioral health encounters; 14% were wounded or injured in combat; 35 % reported physical pain affecting their ability to work or exercise. Over 99% completed the voluntary behavioral health interview; 83% agreed that the assessment will help soldiers get the help they need; 27% report they disclosed a personal problem not previously disclosed.
    • The three star general's support was critical—and helped de-stigmatize the behavioral health assessment; over 9,000 soldiers assessed from Jan- Sep 2006
