What is the Psychological Health Program?
We are Missouri Army National Guard’s full time behavioral health providers.  Our program consists of one Director of Psychological Health and two Psychological Health Coordinators.
 
How do we help Soldiers?
We provide information and education about stress, family issues, and common behavioral health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. 
We offer support, guidance, coaching in positive coping and resilience, and referral to resources and treatment.
We can help with short term, solution-focused counseling while assisting Soldiers with connection to ongoing treatment if needed.
We provide ongoing case management and support to Soldiers who are on a behavioral health profile to help them navigate the process, access treatment, and return to full duty as efficiently as possible.
 
How do we help Command?
We answer questions about how to get help for Soldiers with behavioral health needs.
We provide information and/or briefings to units on behavioral health issues and stressors, healthy coping and resilience, and available resources for behavioral health support and treatment.
We partner with Chaplain services to offer Unit and individual Soldier supports in the event of a loss to suicide or other sudden/tragic death.
