Combat-related trauma and pre-deployment insomnia symptoms are significantly associated with higher odds of developing post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety, according to a study in the July issue of SLEEP. Sleep problems before deployment at least doubled the risk for PTSD and quadrupled it for depression, notes the Los Angeles Times. The authors concluded that the pre-deployment assessment of insomnia symptoms may help to identify those at highest risk for subsequent adverse mental health outcomes.
