Summary Since 2001, U.S. military forces have been engaged in extended conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. While most military personnel cope well across the deployment cycle, the operational tempo may raise the risk of mental health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depression, and consequences from traumatic brain injury (TBI). To support servicemembers and their families as they cope with these challenges, the U.S. Department of Defense has implemented numerous programs addressing biological, social, spiritual, and holistic influences on psychological health along the resilience, prevention, and treatment continuum that focus on a variety of clinical and nonclinical concerns. As these efforts have proliferated, evaluating their effectiveness has become increasingly important. To support the design and implementation of program evaluation, RAND developed the RAND Online Measure Repository (ROMR) which indexes and describes measures related to psychological health and TBI. The ROMR is a publicly accessible, online, searchable database containing 171 measures related to psychological health and TBI. This report describes the rationale for developing the ROMR, the content included in the ROMR, and its potential in both civilian and military populations. The ROMR includes information about measure domains, psychometrics, number of items, and costs, which can inform the selection of measures for program evaluations. Included measures address domains of primary importance to psychological health (PTSD, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and resiliency) and TBI (cognition, executive functioning, and memory). Also identified are measures relevant to military units, such as unit cohesion and force readiness and preservation.
