Deployment Health Clinical Center This website provides information on emerging health concerns for Service members and their families. It also includes many helpful links related to deployment and health and provides contact information for a number of additional resources.
Force Health Protection and Readiness This website was established by the Department of Defense as an additional resource to address deployment-related concerns for troops and family members. The Directorate also provides a toll-free, direct hotline number (800-497-6261) for service members and their families with deployment-related questions.
DoD Mental Health Self-Assessment (MHSA) Program This site offers a mental health and alcohol screening and referral program for military families and service members affected by deployment and mobilization. This voluntary and anonymous program is offered online, by phone, and through special events held at installations and reserve units. Anonymous self-assessments are available for depression, bipolar disorder, alcohol use, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and generalized anxiety disorder. Individualized results and military health resources, including TRICARE, VA Centers, and Military OneSource, are provided at the end of every assessment. Online assessment tools can be accessed here.
Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program, On-Demand Support The MFLC program provides short-term, problem-solving, solution-focused non-medical counseling support. Non-medical counseling is designed to address issues such as improving relationships at home and work, stress management, adjustment and reintegration issues, marital problems, parenting, and grief and loss issues. The MFLC program also provides psycho-educational presentations on a variety of topics for National Guard and Reserve Components and their families. MFLCs providing on-demand support assist with deployment and reintegration events, family days, and drill weekends. Financial counselors are deployed in tandem with MFLCs to address a range of issues from basic budgeting and money management to savings and investments. The on-demand program is available at no cost and provides an anonymous and confidential service to troops and families. On-Demand Request Form
