U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps Expands Embedded Behavioral Health Program Nationwide


By: 
Date: September 12 2012

Sept. 12, 2012 – Fredericksburg, VA – After announcing a plan in November 2011 to expand recruitment for the newly developed Embedded Behavioral Health (EBH) program, aimed to proactively attack behavioral health issues, the Civilian Corps of the United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) successfully recruited qualified behavioral health professionals throughout fiscal year 2012 to provide behavioral health services at multiple medical treatment facilities nationwide.
“The Civilian Corps ramped up its recruitment efforts to include several virtual career fairs throughout this fiscal year to help staff the EBH program nationwide,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “Dedicated to providing superior healthcare to military personnel and their families, the Civilian Corps will continue its strong recruitment efforts to ensure the EBH and other programs are available at facilities worldwide.”

Through the Embedded Behavioral Health program, highly trained professionals proactively treat and manage behavioral health risks. Each EBH team, made up of both civilian and military personnel, consists of clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers. Having professional staff available at facilities allows soldiers to seek behavioral health services in a timely and efficient manner.
The Civilian Corps continues its strong recruitment efforts to provide military personnel and their families with top-quality healthcare at facilities worldwide. To learn more about the Civilian Corps, visit www.civilianmedicaljobs.com.
