Active Duty

As an active duty member of the military, you are always prepared to deploy—whether to a base overseas, into a combat situation, or domestically in response to a natural disaster or event. Some active duty members may have seen and experienced things—whether in the military or civilian life—that affect their well-being or get in the way of their relationships, work, or daily activities. Perhaps you’ve been acting in ways or feeling emotions that concern you or others, and you’re looking for ways to get a handle on the situation. Maybe you’re drinking too much, having difficulty sleeping, or dealing with always being on edge. Whatever your situation, there are resources and support available to help you manage these and other issues, and help you get back on track.
