Services are offered for situational adjustment problems, which may be excluded from coverage under TRICARE behavioral health plans. The goal is to provide professional assistance early, before more significant problems develop. Individual, marriage, family and child counseling and referrals are available as well.
Personal Financial Management (PFM)
This program stresses proactive, long-range financial education and training aimed at preventing financial crisis and ensuring financial success. It is imperative that we teach Sailors financial responsibility at every stage of their careers.
Establishing a life-cycle approach for Sailors and families will form a continuum from recruitment through retirement. This preventative and educational approach to PFM allows Sailors to focus on mission needs and will ultimately increase retention and readiness for our Navy.
Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP)
The Navy recognizes that frequent relocations associated with the military lifestyle create career challenges for military spouses. The FERP addresses those challenges in basic workshops, career planning, resume writing, interview techniques, federal employment information, self-assessments, goal setting, and vocational tests. Resources available include libraries, computer job search assistance and available job listings locally and nationwide. The FERP also provides employment support and educational referrals for military family members as they relocate due to re-assignment.
