Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Peter W. Chiarelli took the helm of the Army's suicide prevention efforts in January, and has been working hard to reduce the stigma of seeking help. In that vein, two new initiatives were launched Aug. 1 by Department of Defense Health Affairs and the Defense Center of Excellence. The first program provides Web-Based Behavioral Health Care Services through the TRICARE Assistance Program. This program offers unlimited short-term, problem solving counseling 24/7 with a licensed counselor from home or any location. The second program will build a network of locations and online providers for telemental health services, using medically supervised, secure audio-visual conferencing to link those seeking help with offsite providers.
