FH Army Substance Abuse Program encourages mental health readiness

Being ready — whether for a mission, a job, or family responsibilities, requires a person to be mentally and physically healthy.

Most people have a good idea of how physically fit they may be, but what about their mental health? Fort Huachuca Army Substance Abuse Prevention Program personnel encourage participation in the Rally for Readiness, a Military Pathways campaign that aims to have 10,000 service members, veterans and their Families take a free, anonymous mental health self-assessments this summer at www.MilitaryMentalHealth.org.

At the end of the self-assessment, users receive immediate feedback as to whether their symptoms are consistent with common mental health conditions such as post traumatic stress disorder, depression, generalized anxiety disorder and more.

Sadness about a lost job, anxiety about an upcoming move, or stress after a fight with one’s spouse are all normal. However, when sadness, anxiety and stress take over, or last for longer than they should, it could mean an individual might benefit from professional help.

For more information on the Rally to Readiness, call the Army Substance Abuse Program prevention coordinator at 520.538.1315.
