Incidence in 2 NZEF

Incidence in 2 NZEF

As far as the New Zealand Force as a whole was concerned, neurosis and exhaustion made up just over 3 per cent of all sickness admissions to hospital (neurosis 2.11 per cent, physical and nervous exhaustion 1.26 per cent).

There were 1927 nervous cases invalided to New Zealand during the war, and they fell into the following categories: anxiety neurosis 692, nervous exhaustion 163, schizophrenia 84, psychopathic personality 72, depression 94, while other miscellaneous cases totalled 822.

To this chronological account must be added some reference to several special problems in the handling of neurosis in 2 NZEF.
