Abstract

Military mental health involves traditional mental health approaches coupled with exposure to specific treatment issues and regulations that are unique to service members. A deployed environment creates challenges to treatment not commonly encountered stateside and requires the mental health provider to shift paradigms. Flexibility in approaching treatment issues is necessary to successfully navigating warzone mental health.
