The 2008 HRB Survey was patterned after the prior surveys and continued to assess the nature, extent, and consequences of substance use and abuse (alcohol, illicit drugs, and tobacco) in each service and in the entire military. It also examined mental well-being with an emphasis on screeners suggesting the need for further evaluation for depression, serious psychological distress, generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and physical and sexual abuse. Further, the survey appraised stress and coping at work and in the family, assessed combat exposure experiences, expanded questions about deployment experiences, examined suicidality, and assessed possible traumatic brain injury (TBI). In addition, it explored special topics, such as sexual health, gender-specific issues, oral health, gang involvement, and hearing protection. Finally, it provided an assessment of progress for the military in meeting selected Healthy People 2010 objectives.
