Today on Drinking Diaries, we’ve chosen to reproduce this helpful infographic, courtesy of Military Pathways. Military Pathways provides free, anonymous mental health and alcohol self-assessments for family members and service personnel in all branches of the military, including the National Guard and Reserve. The self-assessments are a series of questions that, when linked together, help create a picture of how an individual is feeling and whether they could benefit from talking to a health professional. The primary goals of the program are to reduce stigma, raise awareness about mental health, and connect those in need to available resources. The self-assessments address depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol use and bipolar disorder.
The Infographic below covers useful information on alcohol abuse; including alcoholism symptoms, binge drinking, military alcohol abuse, youth drinking and more.
