Military treatment facility providers have in-depth knowledge of service requirements and understand the process to complete these specific evaluations.
Why did I get a profile after my PHA, PDHA, PDHRA?
- LHI reviews all answers that you provide, based on the combined responses LHI may initiate or recommend a profile. A provider will first review the documentation to determine that a profile is warranted.
- Soldiers may not immediately be contacted that a profile was initiated but can always check their medical readiness.

Will a Behavior Health Profile or getting treatment affect my security clearance?
VERY UNLIKELY....professional behavioral health counseling is not a threat to an individual's security clearance; rather it can be a positive factor in the security clearance process. CCF's adjudicative history indicates that 99.98% of cases with psychological concerns obtain/retain their security clearance eligibility.
