Behavioral Health keeps Marines and families resilient and healthy. The Behavioral Health Branch mission is to help Marines and their families optimize their psychological, social and spiritual spheres and revitalize depleted areas through prevention, training and treatment. Classes and trainings are offered to promote prevention and education in areas including: stress and anger management, parenting, and healthy marriages. Counseling services are available for those who need assistance, including couples, children and families. When issues of any type of abuse arise, victim services are available.

To accomplish this mission the Behavioral Health Branch employs a host of multidisciplinary personnel including: Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs), Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs), Substance Abuse Counselors, prevention specialists and administrative staff.
