Mental Health Advisory Team 9 (MHAT 9) Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) 2013 Afghanistan
United States. Department of the Army. Office of the Surgeon General; United States. Central Command; U.S. Forces-Afghanistan
"The Mental Health Advisory Team 9 (MHAT 9) 2013 mission to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) was directed by the Chief of Staff of the Army (CSA) and was supported by the leadership of US Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A). As in previous years, the Office of The Surgeon General of the Army took the lead in mission execution and key support was provided by the Office of the Command Surgeon, USCENTCOM [U.S. Army Central Command], the Office of the Command Surgeon, USFOR-A, and Task Force Medical-Afghanistan. The CSA directed the MHAT 9 to focus on the role of small unit leadership as a factor influencing the mental health and well-being of Soldiers. The CSA's focus was prompted, in part, by the Joint MHAT (J-MHAT) 8 finding of a small but significant decline in Soldiers' perceptions of small unit officer leadership. Unlike the previous two J-MHATs, MHAT 9 focused exclusively on Soldiers. The mission of MHAT 9 was twofold: 1) to provide a theater-wide assessment of behavioral health and well-being while focusing on small unit leadership by surveying Soldiers in maneuver units, and 2) to provide recommendations to optimize unit behavioral health (BH). […] The report contains four key sections: 1. Status of Soldiers compared to three (2009, 2010, and 2012) of the five previous OEF samples. MHAT 9 and the three prior MHATs all implemented the same sampling plan (e.g., random selection of maneuver platoons) enabling cross sample comparisons. 2. Behavioral healthcare staffing ratio and suicide prevalence. 3. Focus group summary. 4. Integrative recommendations."
