Military life requires strength, resilience and resourcefulness – and just about everyone, service members and family members alike, could use a little support from time to time to stay emotionally healthy and at your best.
With confidential, non-medical counseling, you have access to help when you need it. Our trained counselors are experienced in military life, holding many thousands of counseling sessions a year. Meet the team behind Military OneSource’s call center and learn more about our non-medical counseling. We’ve helped service members and families with everything from managing daily stress to more challenging issues.
Take advantage of our support to keep your emotional health strong, work through issues and be mission ready. We’re here to help.
This free support is confidential. Services are not reported to command and will not affect your career or security clearance, or your spouse’s. That means you can receive non-medical counseling without anyone’s knowledge, including:

Our counseling services were developed based on the challenges that people face every day in military life – issues that can compromise your readiness or ability to stand strong.
We want to make it easy for you to use our services. You can connect with a consultant to schedule an appointment 24/7, no matter where you live or serve, in the way that works best for you:
Non-medical counseling is short-term (up to 12 sessions, per issue). Here are examples of what we can and cannot address.
