This article describes the reliability of the instruments embedded in a mental health screening instrument designed to detect risky drinking, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder among members of the Armed Forces. The instruments were generally reliable, however, the risky drinking screen (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test-Consumption) had unacceptable reliability (α = 0.58). This was the first attempt to assess psychometric properties of a screening and assessment instrument widely used for members of the Armed Forces.
