U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps Observes PTSD Awareness Month

The Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) recognizes June as National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month, along with National PTSD Awareness Day on June 27th. This mental health disorder can develop after someone has been through a traumatic situation, especially one that is life-threatening.

Behavioral Health is one of the main focuses within the Army Medicine Civilian Corps as they continue to provide the best quality of care to its uniformed service members, the retired service members, their families and other eligible beneficiaries every day. For example, Army Medicine’s Embedded Behavioral Health (EBH) model provides behavioral health care to Soldiers in close proximity to their unit’s work area. The goal of EBH is to work within a closer physical proximity to Soldiers’ work areas to help streamline the behavioral health treatment process. The Civilian Corps pursues qualified behavioral health professionals to staff Army hospitals and clinics worldwide.

“Our behavioral health professionals strive to provide the best treatment possible for our Army service members, veterans, and their families,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “The Civilian Corps offers a rewarding opportunity for civilian behavioral health providers to work alongside our military counterparts and make a difference without requiring military duties like enlistment or deployment.”

The U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps has career opportunities in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social work and counseling. More information can be found at

Civilians make up approximately 60% of the total Army Medicine workforce and provide day-to-day care for uniformed service members, beneficiaries and their families at Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. The Civilian Corps provides rewarding career opportunities for civilians to serve those who serve their country. Employees are not subject to military requirements, such as enlistment or deployment, and receive excellent benefits, including flexible work schedules, competitive salaries, health and life insurances and access to state-of-the-art training and equipment.
