Psychiatric News (9/28) reports, “Older veterans who say they have a strong sense of purpose in life may be less likely to experience a range of mental disorders compared with those with those lacking such a sense of purpose,” investigators concluded after examining data from the “National Health and Resilience in Veterans Study…a survey of 4,069 U.S. veterans, the majority of whom were 60 years and older, white, and male.” The findings were published online Sept. 23 ahead of print in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
