[Correspondence] Post-deployment screening for mental disorders and help-seeking in the UK military – Authors’ reply

Lyndsay Baines and colleagues suggest that our findings1 could jeopardise military post-deployment screening. The policy in this area is for others to decide; our task was to deliver the first randomised controlled trial to inform this decision, which we contend that we have done, even if some find the results uncomfortable. The UK Armed Forces do not implement post-deployment screening; however, for countries that do, a reassessment of their screening programmes is advised in light of this new information.
