While the majority of older adult trauma survivors do not develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a significant minority do, and some may have sub-threshold PTSD 1 or other trauma-related disorders, including depression and anxiety. 2 Unless treated, older trauma survivors seem to experience a relatively stable course of PTSD across the lifespan, with some waxing and waning of symptoms. Older adults with PTSD are at risk of not receiving timely and appropriate mental health treatment, indicating targeted outreach could be helpful in increasing service use and improving care.

Conclusion: More than three-quarters of US veterans with lifetime AUD are currently abstinent or subthreshold drinkers. Factors associated with abstinence included older age, health problems, religiosity and social engagement. Results suggest a "J-shaped" relationship between current drinking patterns and health and psychosocial factors in veterans, with subthreshold drinkers generally having better health than abstinent and hazardous drinkers.

AbstractRecent studies showing an association between adverse childhood experiences and the development of alexithymia in military personnel have generated interest regarding the role of alexithymia in the pathway linking childhood trauma exposure to mental health disorders. Accordingly, the current study was conducted to (a) examine the associations among adverse childhood experiences, alexithymia, and symptoms of depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among recently deployed Canadian military personnel and (b) assess the mediating role of alexithymia in these associations. Data collected from 2,927 members o...
