Buy in with fnp/pmhnp. One clinic-Carenton Clinic. Soldiers only. Refer dependents off post at this time. Children on post therapy and family/marital but no meds. Expand to other remaining clinics. In process of changing from multiple clinics (red,white,blue) to White only seeing blended family and service members. Many provifers used to seeing only soldiers for instance may find it daunting seeing unfit individuals with chronic health care problems. Add mental health. The facts: MH issues in half of patients. My experience=unaddressed due to time or addressed incompletely due to lack of information. Civilian world already doing this. Some clinics having a mental health day each week and incorporating BH specialists for this purpose only or having on staff a trained specialist=built in resource. We already have that resource built in. Train up not down. Training updatesTemp and contracto workersTime concernsLiability concernsLiason

A 26-year old Ft. Campbell-based Army sergeant with the 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, who'd enlisted after 9/11 doing three tours in Iraq, committed suicide in Clarksville, TN seven weeks after coming home. After his second tour, he answered 'yes' to the PTSD identifiers on his post-deployment questionnaire, writing in that "he had combat-related nightmares, felt down or hopeless at times, and had mood swings." Diagnosed with PTSD and unfit to deploy, two days later he was sent back to Iraq for his third tour. When he returned, family say he was a changed man, and believed he had been trying to get killed after speaking to men from his unit at his funeral. He would "flip on a dime," paranoid and anxious. His wife reported his "condition … 'spiraled fast…‘ including an incident that led to his arrest and a charge of domestic assault." He was found face down in a local park with a shotgun at his side. 115 36 50 29 2007<br />Source: Inter Press News Service Agency [2007-09-10]<br />
