Follow-up findings of 133 psychiatric patients evaluated between September 1953 and March 1954 from miscellaneous units surrounding the psychiatric section,3rd Infantry Division, reveal that 75% of patients not in the process of separation at the time of consultation functioned adequately or better after the consultation.Forty-four percent of the population had been separated from the service at the time of the follow-up. This was primarily due to patients referred from units outside the 3rd Division. Certification for administrative separations was utilized in almost all instances in which it was given.This population of 133 patients is compared with a previously published report of 149 patients from units within the 3rd Infantry Division.Follow-up results of these 282 patients are examined in terms of presenting complaint or reason for referral. Seventy-five percent of patients with subjective, psychogenic complaints functioned adequately or better when returned to duty after a single consultation.
