Abstract : The health and wellness of service members are continued concerns in the wake of two intense, prolonged military efforts. The Naval Unit Behavioral Health Needs Assessment Survey (NUBHNAS) will undertake the surveillance of Navy and Marine Corps personnel in different force settings for the purpose of informing leadership decisions about stress and health maintenance. This report includes a comprehensive listing and description of all survey measures included on the NUBHNAS and history of use on BHNAS and Mental Health Advisory Team assessments. If part of a validated scale, scoring methods and citations are included. This report is valuable both as a tool for the successful completion of the proposed project and as documentation of procedures.
