The purpose of this study is to examine cross-sectional data, to evaluate if there is a correlation between exposure to combat, negative impacts leading to moral injury, mental health, and suicidality of military personnel and veterans. This study is proposing that there is a correlation between negative shifts in morality due to combat exposure, which lead to higher rates of mental health diagnoses and suicide rates of combat veterans.
Research Questions and Hypotheses
The model being tested in this study is to evaluate cross sectional data to evaluate if there is a correlation between exposure to combat, the moral compass, and increased negative impact to an individual’s mental health and increased risk for suicidality. The pathway will be depicted below in Figure 2.
Question 1: Does deployment status and experience in combat lead to higher rates of mental health diagnoses and suicidality?
Question 2: Does deployment/combat status predict moral injury?
Hypothesis 1: Increased number of deployments and combat experiences is positively correlated with negative mental health implications and increased risk for suicidality.
Hypothesis 2: There is a statistically significant difference in moral injury levels between participants in different deployment/combat status groups (never deployed, deployed but not exposed to combat, deployed and exposed to combat).
