Behavioral and Social Health Outcomes Practice (BSHOP) 

Picture 3

Through the analysis of individual and population data (e.g., existing medical and administrative data, surveys, focus groups, and Soldier-level index case data), BSHOP strives to identify patterns, issues, and risk and protective factors associated with behavioral and social health to mitigate adverse outcomes.

BSHOP provides information and services to US Army leadership at various levels including the Office of the Surgeon General Behavioral Health Service Line (OTSG BHSL), G-1 Army Resiliency Directorate (ARD), AMEDD Center & School, Major Commands, installations, units (in theatre and in garrison), and behavioral health programs and military treatment facilities.

BSHOP’s staff is divided into two main sections:


Army DoDSER Resources

This page contains information and resources for the Army Public Health Center (Provisional)'s Army Department of Defense Suicide Event Report (DoDSER) program.

Behavioral Health Risk Assessment Data Report (BH-RADR)

The BH-RADR, released annually, contains data regarding behavioral health diagnoses, encounters, and referrals among active-duty Army. Data collected from deployment health assessments, as well as annual health assessments, are analyzed and reported.

The Surveillance of Suicidal Behavior Publication (SSBP)

This annual SSBP presents characteristics of suicidal behavior (suicides, attempts, and ideation) among active-duty Regular Army, activated National Guard, and activated US Army Reserve Soldiers.


Behavioral Health Monitoring Section (BHMS)

BHMS is responsible for routine monitoring and reporting of behavioral health trends among Soldiers in the Army.

Field Investigations and Evaluation Section (FIES)

The FIES provides field investigation services and program evaluation expertise and support upon request or tasking.
