Abstract : HFM-205 addressed progress for advancing the science and practice in the challenging arena of mental health and well-being across the military spectrum. New contributions were presented in the areas of the incidence of mental health problems related to deployments (Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, Traumatic Brain Injuries, suicides, substance abuse) and their prevention and treatment. A fair deal of attention was devoted to the barriers that prevent soldiers in need of help to seek help and stay in therapy. A number of promising emerging technologies were also introduced. The comparison about best practices and mental health problems prevalence between different NATO nations raised new important research questions that should be addressed by the HFM program of work in a near future.
