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

In their cluster randomised controlled trial, Roberto J Rona and colleagues (April 8, p 1410)1 found that post-deployment mental health screening of military personnel using tailored advice, neither reduced the prevalence of mental health disorders nor increased help-seeking behaviour. These findings could jeopardise post-deployment screening at a time when the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has deployed the largest build-up of military personnel along Moscow’s sphere of influence since the Cold War.
