Summary
The Military Health Services System (MHSS) has more psychiatrists than it needs to meet its current and upcoming readiness requirements, according to our analysis of DoD'S health care needs. Therefore, the MHSS needs no prescribing psychologists nor any other additional mental health care providers authorized to prescribe psychotropic medication. Moreover, DoD does not even account for prescribing psychologists when determining its medical readiness needs. Although DoD met its goal to train psychologists to prescribe drugs, it faced many difficulties in implementing the Psychopharmocology Demonstration Project (PDP). Not all of these were resolved. For example, the MHSS never had a clear vision of the prescribing psychologist's role, did not meet recruitment goals, and repeatedly changed the curriculum. Consequently, ACNP recommended in 1995 that unless these issues were addressed, the PDP should end
