Being in the military alone can be severely stressful. Adding a family, or a war, or threat of war to the equation definitely makes it much more stressful. This website is tied in with the United States Department of Defense and the nonprofit organization, Screening for Mental Health, who are trying to find via assessments if a military man or woman is experiencing traumatic events.
For instance, these assessments will help a person find out whether or not they might have some common mental health issues including, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, alcohol problems and more. Of course, just as with Psych Central, the screening will not provide a diagnosis – for that you need to see your own professional. It will help point you towards a direction, tell you what you might have and where best you can seek assistance.
Best of all, your screening can be anonymous. No one will come up and show your results and say this is Dr. Clyde’s results. This will definitely help you if you feel you need the help. Don’t wait any longer!

The DAHMW is a nonprofit organization that helps men and women who are being abused by their spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends. Their mission is to provide crisis intervention and support services to those who are abused and to help find a way to stop domestic violence from happening in the first place.
First founded in 2000, it offers help to heterosexual as well as same-sex victims, because violence knows no boundaries and is not a respecter of person, race, nationality or creed. Their main specialization is to men who are abused by their women counterparts, however; as mentioned, no one is turned away from respect and support.
There is also a mailing list and a toll-free domestic violence hotline. If you are being abused, please be sure to cover your tracks and call today! Don’t hide in shame!
On April 7, 1998, Kristin Brooks committed suicide. It was a horrible tragedy for those who knew and loved her. What could be done, wondered her husband Reese Butler, to help those who were still alive and hurting like Kristin was that horrible April day?
The 1-800-SUICIDE phone number is just one of the many causes that were created because of Reese’s and the Center’s help and Kristin’s tragic end. There is also an online crisis chat, college campus awareness events of suicide and its’ effects on not just the person committing the acts but their family and friends; and also music therapies. They are also located on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
You can volunteer to help, or you can call to get help. Either way, it’s a win-win situation.
