The Mental Health of a Military Spouse

PTSD treatment in Asheville, NCIt's no secret that military troops coming back from war often have mental health problems. Because of the conditions in Third World countries, along with combat, fighters are under a great deal of stress and see many traumatic events during their time serving. A new study shows that not only are military troops away at war dealing with a high level of mental health issues, army spouses who have deployed husbands or wives are also at risk for high levels of mental health issues. If you're searching for holistic PTSD treatment in Asheville, NC, contact Legacy Freedom. We specialize in helping veterans and their families.

In one study it was determined that army wives are more likely to experience anxiety, insomnia, depression and other mental health disorders. While it's not uncommon for military spouses to be worried about an upcoming deployment, sometimes experiencing this type of situation is more than just difficult to deal with. This can be especially true when military troops are facing a third or fourth deployment.

Some families experience deployments often. In some cases, troops are sent to Afghanistan twice within just a couple of years. Then they're also being deployed to Iraq after that. Three or four deployments in less than four years could be too much for anyone to handle.

Alyssa Mansfield of RTI International, co-author of the most recent study, states that, "What we found was that the wives of soldiers who were deployed were more likely to have mental health diagnoses than wives of soldiers who were not deployed. And not only was it deployment versus nondeployment but also the length of deployment that turned out to be a factor."
