Abstract

In this presentation of psychiatric problems of a Service Command the deficiencies have been stressed and corrective measures have been outlined. We feel that military psychiatry consists of close integration of the levels of selection, prevention, therapy, education and administration. If we are to have more effective neuropsychiatry in our Service Command, the following requirements should be met:(a) The assignment of skilled neuropsychiatric examiners to each induction station who will have at hand social histories.(b) The assignment of experienced neuropsychiatric officers to each reception center and replacement training center whose efforts will be directed predominantly toward additional psychiatric screening, treatment of mild disorders, and prevention of potential psychiatric casualties.(c) The institution of methods to improve the neuropsychiatric work in fixed hospital units by:1. A decrease in the excessive clinical load;2. An increase in the numbers and effectiveness of the neuropsychiatric personnel and allied aides.(d) The continued development of sound educational and administrative procedures.
