  • DOD Task Force on Mental Health Releases Report

    Department of Defense Task Force on Mental Health:

    Stigma in the military remains pervasive and often prevents service members from seeking needed care.

    The military system does not have enough fiscal or personnel resources to support the psychological health of service members and their families in peace and during conflict.

    Mental health professionals aren't easily accessible to service members and their families, and the number of active-duty mental health professionals is insufficient and likely to decrease.

    Leaders, family members and medical personnel are insufficiently trained in matters relating to psychological health.

    Some Department of Defense policies, including those related to command notification or self-disclosure of psychological health issues, are overly conservative.
