Help on the Web

www.MilitaryMentalHealth.org is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to all service members and their families. The site features the new Mental Health Self Assessment Program which gives service members information about DoD and VA services, including stress management, mental health, alcohol abuse education, and an online self-assessment program.

Additionally, the Office of Family Policy and Military Quality of Life works closely with Military OneSource and service family support programs to provide preventive, non-medical work-life counseling.

The Military Advanced Training Center

For Michael Cameron, an Army specialist who lost a leg to a roadside bomb, the Military Advanced Training Center and the healthcare personnel that support it have been critical to his recovery. “I couldn’t ask for a better team of therapists and doctors,” he said. After arriving at Walter Reed on April 8, 2007, Cameron began a tough rehabilitation regimen of five hours a day, five days a week of physical and occupational therapy. After six months, he says he is well on the road to recovery and thankful for all those who made it possible.
