US Navy Reservists returning from deployments face unique challenges that can cause increased stress in their lives and exacerbate deployment stress injuries such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Reservists face immense culture changes after completing a deployment, often going from a high tempo warrior community/mentality back into a more routine life where their civilian employers and family members may not understand nor be able to relate to their deployment experiences. Reservists face access to care challenges since their eligibility and access to military or VA healthcare is dependent on a number of factors including the length of time since redeployment, timely completion of Line of Duty determination and the geographic location of the Reservist’s residence. Civilian mental health insurance is often minimal, and civilian mental health providers may not be familiar with symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Traumatic Brain Injury.

Support or counseling services for family members may be difficult to find, especially in remote geographic locations. BUMED uniquely designed PHOP programs to serve the needs of Reservists and their families and address long-term needs for support identify by numerous legislative and executive branch studies.
