Survey finds student military veterans face some unique health issues

MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL, Minn., May 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With more military veterans expected to go to school this fall as a result of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, universities and colleges will need to ensure student veterans' unique needs are met, according to a first-of-its-kind comprehensive report to be issued Friday by the University of Minnesota and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU).

The report, "Health and Health-Related Behaviors: Minnesota Postsecondary Student Veterans," found that while student veterans experienced higher rates of some mental health issues and sexual assault (most notably among females), they did not differ substantially from the general student population in most measures of overall health.

"These are the first real health data available on veterans going back to universities and colleges as students," said Ed Ehlinger, the director and chief health officer of the University of Minnesota Boynton Health Service. "We found that in most respects, the veterans look like the rest of the student population."

Ehlinger will be discussing the study's findings at the American College Health Association's annual meeting in San Francisco Friday. To view the full report, visit http://www.bhs.umn.edu/healthdata/results
