User Guide for the Catalog of Programs
Programs can be searched alphabetically or the list of 211 programs can be narrowed down using five criteria.
Search by Branch of Service
To search programs by branch of service check as many branches as you are interested in focusing on; this will pull up a list of programs that service that/those particular branch(s). Programs that are described as DoD-wide include those that are available to participants from all services. In order to identify all programs that service members, from an individual branch of service can access, it is essential to include both DoD-wide programs and those that specifically address the service in question.
Search by Deployment Phase
Programs can also be searched by the deployment phases for which they provide services. The category “not related to deployment phase” indicates programs that are accessible to their participants and provide similar services or activities regardless of deployment phase. These programs were determined to be unrelated to deployment. In contrast, if all four phases of deployment are indicated, then the program has distinct activities for each deployment phase.
Search by Focus Issue
The focus issue is the main target area the program is working to address. It can be a clinical (depression, PTSD, substance use, suicide prevention, TBI, general psychological health) or nonclinical (deployment-related, domestic violence, family and/or children, legal, postdeployment and reintegration, relationships, resilience, spiritual, stress reduction, other) issue.
Search by Domain
The domain is based on an expanded biopsychosocial model. These programs can be characterized as having a focus on biological, psychological, social, spiritual, and/or holistic aspects of the experiences of service members and their families.
Search by Approach
The approach of the program can be the provision of clinical care; education or training regarding psychological health and/or traumatic brain injury, including the provision of information regarding these conditions; activities to prevent psychological health problems or traumatic brain injury or increase resilience in the face of potential psychological health challenges; and outreach to connect members of the military community to needed services.
