Deployment Takes Toll on Army Wives
Date:1/13/2010

Spouses show higher rates of depression, anxiety, sleep disorders

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 13 (HealthDay News) -- War isn't just tough on soldiers. Army wives whose husbands were deployed have higher rates of depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and other mental health issues than the wives of soldiers who stayed home, a new study shows.

The study findings are published in the Jan. 14 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
