Pentagon and Congress should act quickly to end gay military ban, APA says
Date:2/4/2010

r lesbian service members have served in the U.S. military with no ill effects to others," Goodheart said. "In fact, a stop-loss policy during the Persian Gulf War prevented discharges for homosexuality during that war."

In addition, Goodheart noted that repealing the current policy would improve the mental health of gay and lesbian people already serving in the armed forces.

"The military can be seen as a highly stressful environment, especially in wartime. It is important to encourage military personnel to seek mental health care when needed in order to promote their well-being and effectiveness," she said. "The 'don't ask, don't tell' policy, however, works against effective access to mental health services by increasing the anxiety of gay and lesbian military personnel and then discouraging them from seeking mental health care."
