Contact the DCoE Outreach Center for 24/7 Help

By Dr. Lolita O’Donnell, Clearinghouse, Outreach and Advocacy Directorate deputy director, Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Heath and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE)

Do you have questions about combat stress, depression or other psychological health concerns? Do you know someone having problems with memory because of a concussion? Do you need clinical guidance on how to treat a warrior? Are you a family member whose spouse is deployed and would like guidance in assisting your family with deployment issues?

Since January 2009, the DCoE Outreach Center has assisted more than 7,500 people.

Questions about psychological health and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often complicated in nature, and it’s easy for information to become overwhelming or seem too technical.
