Psychological Health Program

What is the Psychological Health Program?
We are Missouri National Guard (MONG)’s full time psychological health providers.  Our program for ARNG provides a Director of Psychological Health and two Psychological Health Coordinators on site at Army National Guard Headquarters, Ike Skelton Training Site.
 
Our program for ANG provides a Director of Psychological Health on location at the three primary sites where ANG assets work: Whiteman Air Force Base, Jefferson Barracks, and Rosecrans Air National Guard Base.

How do we help members of the MONG?
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 and Airmen with connection to ongoing treatment if needed.
We provide ongoing case management and support to Soldiers and Airmen 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 and Airmen 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 Soldiers and Airmen support in the event of a loss to suicide or other sudden/tragic death.
