What is Behavioral Health?

Behavioral Health refers to the balance between thoughts, moods, and behaviors. Disruption of the balance can result in problems for the person who is experiencing it, things like relationship conflict, worsening work or school performance, and difficulty meeting responsibilities. Maintaining behavioral health, or getting back on track once behavioral health has been disrupted, requires help and support. That’s where the USAR Psychological Health Program (PHP) comes in. We can provide information about what might be going on and assist you in finding the right resource for the right concern.

The Psychological Health Program and What We Do

The USAR PHP is part of a greater Department of Defense psychological health initiative that was mandated in 2012. Every service and every component has a PHP; and every program is staffed by personnel with the title Director of Psychological Health (DPH). There is a military DPH for every service and service component.

 

The USAR Psychological Health Program assists individual Soldiers to achieve optimum behavioral health. We do this by connecting geographically dispersed Soldiers and Family members with the resources they need to address behavioral health concerns. The readiness of the force depends upon the strength and resilience of every soldier.

 

The USAR Psychological Health Program serves to assist leaders and units by providing Command consultation. We can help leaders make informed decisions and advocate for Soldiers who are experiencing a behavioral health issue without compromising unit or mission integrity.

 

The USAR Psychological Health Program supports units by providing Traumatic Event Management and other group events. When a unit experiences something that could negatively impact it on an organizational level, our team can work with Commanders and Chaplains to assist the unit in processing the experience, preserving unit cohesion, and maintaining individual and collective readiness.
