Overview

Services offered through the Military and Family Life Counseling Program are confidential, not reported to the command, and do not impact a service member’s security clearance.

One-on-one, couple, or group — MFLCs can help you manage life challenges such as:

  • Deployment adjustments
  • Stress management
  • Moving preparations and getting settled
  • Relationship building
  • A problem at work
  • The grieving process following the death of a loved one or colleague

Please note: duty to warn, suspected family maltreatment (domestic violence, child abuse or neglect), harm to self or others, and illegal activity are all exceptions to privacy.

Typically, MFLCs do not address:

  • Abuse
  • Sucidial thoughts
  • Other mental health issues requiring medication or long-term care

If you're facing something which cannot be addressed by a counselor, you will receive a referral for medical counseling services in your community through a military treatment facility or TRICARE.
