Military Family Life Consultant

Mission:

The Military and Family Life Consultant Program provides short term, situational, problem solving counseling services to Service Members (all branches) and their families. Consultants also provide psycho-education to help military Service Members and their families understand the impact of stress, deployments, family reunions following deployments and the stresses of military life. This program extends to parents of deployed soldiers and to the rural communities to which the consultants travel rather than thefamilies traveling to a base for services.

All services are confidential and private except for duty to warn situations.

Info:

The Military & Family Life Consultant (MFLC) provides short-term, non-medical counseling to service members and their families. Through the MFLC Program, licensed clinical providers assist service members and their families with issues they may face through the cycle of deployment - from leaving their loved ones and possibly living and working in harm's way to reintegrating with their community and family. The MFLC program provides support for a range of issues including: relationships, crisis intervention, stress management, grief, occupational and other individual and family issues. Psycho-educational presentations on reunion/reintegration, stress/coping, grief/loss and deployment are provided to commands, Family Readiness Groups, Soldier Readiness Processing and other requested locations.  Support for these issues empowers individuals during the problem-solving process, increases individual and family competency and confidence in handling the stressors of military life and ensures that issues do not impair operational readiness. This program also serves the rural communities and the MFLCs drive to the military families rather than having them drive long distances to bases for their services.
