Relevant Op-ed: Military security contractors get PTSD, too

Human Analytics Advisory Board member Molly Dunigan has written a timely and relevant op-ed in USA Today discussing the prevalence and possible impacts of post traumatic distress disorder (PTSD) in private security contractors. Her research has shown that there are higher rates of PTSD among security contractors relative to civilians and military personnel. She recommends that security companies and their public and private sector clients work together to implement appropriate mental screening before sending security providers into the field, ongoing screening during and after deployment, and destigmatizing and providing effective mental health treatment. Her op-ed is available here635694704373942888-NISOOR-CAR
