The OQ®-WRAP for active personnel and veterans.

The OQ has been used by the Military for years, beginning with Walter Reed in the mid-nineties and spreading across all branches of the armed forces. The OQ®-45.2 is currently used at approximately 150 bases, medical centers and hospitals across the world to track mental health/substance abuse distress in service personnel.

The OQ®-WRAP (Wellness and Resilience Assessment Post-deployment) was developed in conjunction with Madigan Army Hospital. It is a screening tool that alerts you that a soldier is experiencing enough psychological distress that you may want to consider additional exploration and/or interventions.

It can be used by clinicians and in some cases platoon leaders and sergeants when tasked with administering the questionnaire because they best know their soldiers on a personal level.

The OQ®-WRAP is available in English with the OQ®-Analyst software.

Col. Mark Thompson Madigan's deputy commander for clinical services stated:

The questions will probe issues such as financial stability and ask soldiers if they have had any discussions or thoughts about suicide or killing another person.
