Indiana National Guard members and their families often face unique challenges managing the responsibilities of living and working in the civilian community while also maintaining their readiness to perform as a soldier or airman in the National Guard. The Behavioral Health Program of the Indiana National Guard is here to support Guardsmen and their families by helping locate Behavioral Health resources that are available in the communities where our members work and live. Although we do not provide treatment, the Behavioral Health Program staff will work with you and your civilian treatment team to make sure you get the help you need in order to maintain or improve your medical readiness, resiliency and effectiveness as a member of the Indiana National Guard.
