The Civilian Corps of the United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) recognizes June as National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month and continues to pursue qualified behavioral health candidates to staff Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. Behavioral Health remains a priority focus within Army Medicine and specifically for Civilian Corps as they continue to provide the best quality of care to Army Soldiers, beneficiaries and their families.
“The Civilian Corps offers a unique and rewarding opportunity for civilian behavioral health providers to work alongside our military counterpart and make a difference without requiring military duties,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “Our recruitment efforts provide a great opportunity for us to connect one-on-one with field professionals who may be interested in some of the behavioral health initiatives going on in Army Medicine.”

On July 18, Civilian Corps representatives will attend the American Mental Health Counselors Association Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. as Mental Health Counselors serve an important role in Army Medicine Behavioral Health.
