Behavioral Health Events
National Behavioral Health Awareness and Screening events are available to organizations and entities within the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs who support the health and wellbeing of our service members, veterans, and families. Screenings for mental health, like screenings for medical illnesses, can help identify conditions early on, allowing more effective management and treatment. National Behavioral Health Awareness and Screening programs provide kits that include educational and promotional resources to help providers, advocates, family members, and leadership recognize common symptoms and feel better informed as they discuss available health care options with the groups they serve. All kit resources are provided free of charge and are available for service members, veterans, and their families, and for health care providers serving the military community.
The programs currently being offered are described below.
