The stressors of military life can strongly influence the psychological well-being of Soldiers and their Families. Behavioral health conditions, particularly when unrecognized and untreated, can lead to medical non-readiness, early discharge from the Army, suicidal behavior, and many other outcomes.
To be successful in the Army, Soldiers have to be resilient and psychologically strong. That's where the Health Promotion and Wellness Directorate of the Army Public Health Center can help. We have resources and tools to help Soldiers and their Families navigate stress and strengthen their resilience so they can perform at their best. Seeking help is a sign of strength, not a weakness.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call the Military Crisis Line for confidential support at 1-800- 273-TALK (8255) and Press 1.

The 2019 Health of the Force report, the Army's annual population health report, documents behavioral health conditions that influence medical readiness. Leaders can use Health of the Force to optimize health promotion measures and effect culture changes that align with Army modernization efforts to achieve Force dominance.
