Description:

In this anonymous survey study, we are seeking to identify factors that protect against mental health problems, especially posttraumatic stress disorder, among active duty Air Force personnel who have experienced a range of potentially traumatic events (e.g., combat, sexual assault). To date, we have found that certain types of belongingness, positive self-regard, and a strong sense of meaning or purpose in life are associated with less severe emotional distress and suicidal ideation.
