BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Army Reserve Family Programs is a comprehensive blend of quality of life programs in support of Department of Defense activities. Family Programs is a Commander's force multiplier for mission readiness. Family programs staff serve as the primary coordinating resource, who provide a multitude of unit and community-based services that foster the growth, development, and readiness of Soldiers and Families assigned to the Command.
Mental health problems are painful—emotionally, spiritually and socially—for all who are involved. Many people are reluctant to seek behavioral health care because they're afraid a "stigma" surrounds behavioral health problems. Too often, a person fails to reach out for help until he or she is in the midst of a crisis. Our military leadership recognizes the need for addressing behavioral health care issues for men and women in uniform, their families, and retirees.

DCoE oversees three centers, each of which contributes unique insights, standards, clinical tools and research products to the fields of psychological health and traumatic brain injury.
Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center: The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is the traumatic brain injury (TBI) operational component of DCoE. The DVBIC mission is to serve active-duty military, their beneficiaries and veterans with TBIs through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative clinical research initiatives and educational programs, and support for force health protection services. DVBIC fulfills this mission through ongoing collaboration with the Defense Department, military services, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), civilian health partners, local communities, families and individuals with TBI.
Deployment Health Clinical Center: For more than 15 years, Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC) has worked to improve deployment-related health care. DHCC seeks to transform military health care delivery systems from a disease management model to a more effective and efficient population-based collaborative model of care through health systems research, program implementation support at military treatment facilities (MTFs) and program evaluation services.
National Center for Telehealth and Technology: The National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2) is comprised of clinical psychologists, researchers, interactive designers and technical specialists who develop behavioral health assessment, screening, reference and treatment tools for the military community.
