Abstract

A one-year study at West Point revealed that most cadets seen in the mental hygiene service did not have symptoms indicative of a major psychiatric illness; many were diagnosed as having adjustment reactions. Similar findings have been reported among students at civilian institutions. However, the cadets had lower rates of self-referrals and diagnoses of personality disorder and higher frequencies of suicide gestures and psychophysiological reactions.
