Marine Distress Line Expansion To Corps Wide Capability

MarAdmin Number: 226/12  2012

This maradmin announces Corps-wide expansion of the Dstress line. The Dstress line is a CMC initiative that provides an anonymous, Marine-to-Marine counseling and referral service to Marines, attached sailors, and families.  The Dstress line is for all Marines, attached sailors, and families-especially spouses who may be the first to identify health and wellness issues of the entire family.  Callers can speak anonymously about anything from everyday stress to life-threatening crises. Callers to the Dstress line will speak, chat, or email one-on-one with veteran Marines, fleet Marine force corpsmen, and Marine spouses who are all trained in behavioral health counseling.  These peer counselors are supervised by licensed clinical counselors with specialized training in Marine Corps culture who also answer the Dstress line.  The anonymous chat feature is available through the Dstress line homepage at www.Dstressline.Com.  The website also contains an email link, more information about the dstress line, videos, and an international list of government resources for behavioral health needs. The purpose is to increase total fitness and develop the necessary skills required to cope with the widely varying challenges of life in the Marine Corps.
