DCoE.health.mil is the official website to Defense Centers of Excellence (DCoE), an organization created in November 2007 to be the "front door" to warriors, family members, and healthcare providers to the U.S. Department of Defense needing help and information about psychological health and traumatic brain injury.
The mission of the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is to serve active duty military, their beneficiaries, and veterans with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative clinical research initiatives and educational programs. DVBIC fulfills this mission through ongoing collaboration with military, VA and civilian health partners, local communities, families and individuals with TBI.
The Traumatic Brain Injury: The Journey Home site provides an informative and sensitive exploration of TBI, including information for patients, family members, and caregivers. Topics include types and symptoms of brain injury, TBI treatment and recovery, and helpful insights about the potential long-term effects of brain injury. Animation is used to help patients clearly understand the brain, and the results of injuries to different parts of the brain. Survivors and their caregivers share courageous stories about their own experiences, providing down-to-earth facts along with inspiration and hope.
AfterDeployment.org provides wellness resources to the military community including information on medical and behavioral health conditions and interpersonal relationships. The site also offers toll-free numbers for immediate help, and a forum and blog allowing users to communicate with fellow Service members and experts on a variety of topics.
Education, relocation, parenting, stress? Military OneSource is here to help with just about any need. Available by phone or online, this free service is provided by the Department of Defense for active-duty, Guard, and Reserve service members and their families. The service is completely private and confidential, with few exceptions.
