Abstract

Active duty military personnel face psychological issues and problems just as any other segment of the U.S. population.  They also face additional challenges caused by the nature of military duties and conditions.  Service members face a number of structural, attitudinal, and cultural barriers in obtaining needed psychological treatment.  Active duty military personnel seek psychological care outside of the military health service for a range of reasons, including greater confidentiality.  Awareness and sensitivity to military culture is important to effective treatment of active duty military personnel.
