There are currently about 21 million people over 6S years in the United States and over a million of them suffer from a severe degree of mental impairment. This number will undoubtedly increase as more and more people attain their full lifespan. The Veterans Administration is acutely aware of this problem in the population it serves. Currently, there are about 31 million veterans in the United States. About 13 percent of these veterans are over 6S years of age and the number is expected to increase to 40 percent by the turn of the century. In recognition of the pressing need to address this problem, eight Geriatric Research, Educational and Clinical Centers (GRECC) have been established under the auspices of the Veterans Administration and the guiding spirit of Dr. Paul Haber, Assistant Chief Medical Director for Professional Services, Veterans Administration. The purpose of these centers is to develop a better understanding of the complex biomedical and socio-economic problems of the aged in general and to enhance the quality of life of the older veterans in particular o Gerontologists working towards a better understanding of the aging process and better care of the aged have made major progress in the biomedical field in the last decade. Among the efforts made by the Veterans Administration, the department of Extended Care and Academic Affairs have sponsored a number of symposia in the field of Gerontology

A follow-up study of war neuroses by Norman Q Brill( Book )

5 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is the result of cooperative efforts between governmental agencies and also represents a partnership of government and civilian medicine. It would be difficult to overemphasize the pertinency of the subject matter to our national welfare. The experiences of two world wars and their aftermaths demand imaginative and exhaustive investigations of causative, therapeutic and rehabilitative factors in psychiatric illnesses. The pension and compensation functions of the Veterans Administration give factual and startling evidence of these needs. Our defense efforts including the present and future requirements of the armed services, as well as the ever-present spectre of total mobilization in an emergency, all underline the necessity for continued evaluation of the manpower resources of the nation. This includes a study of psychiatric morbidity and how it can be more effectively combated, as well as treated, together with an analysis of the optimum use of the disabled, particularly those with marginal disabilities. This inquiry into the "war neuroses" offers the opportunity for an examination of our present knowledge of the psychoneuroses, particularly as applied to the military setting. It provides a well-documented record of the results of selection, preventive efforts and treatment and rehabilitative procedures. It allows a thoughtful evaluation of screening criteria, assignment methods and treatment programs. It permits conclusions to be drawn with profit to civilian psychiatry, the military and those charged with the after-care of the veteran. That this difficult and laborious research effort could be brought to fruition constitutes a recognition of the dedication and resourcefulness of the authors and those who assisted them.
