Some Navy families are subject to unusual stress in that the active duty parent may be deployed for several months at a time. This study examined children and adolescents from Navy and civilian families who were admitted to a private psychiatric hospital. Deployment of the father placed Navy children and adolescents at risk for psychiatric hospitalization, but mainly in non-intact families where step-parents or single parents were present. Deployment may strain an already vulnerable family structure in selected Navy families.
