Fleet & Family Support Center (FFSC) of NAS Fort Worth JRB provides short-term, counseling and crisis intervention for active duty service members and their spouses.

FOR COMMANDS — THE POWER OF PREVENTION
Fort Worth’s Fleet & Family Support Center counselors provide short-term, solution-focused counseling and crisis intervention for active duty service members and military couples. The most common issues we address are marital problems, stress, anger, and depression.
Military leaders recognize that service members are affected when the members — or their families — are experiencing life’s challenges. FFSC’s clinical counseling encompasses a wide scope of developmental, preventative, and therapeutic services that are designed to address the stresses facing today's military.
In addition to individual and marital counseling, FFSC provides:
• Educational and therapeutic classes for specific concerns such as broken relationships, assertiveness, and resolution of past sexual trauma
• Suicide prevention briefs
• Referrals based on individual mental health needs
All FFSC counselors are licensed and credentialed mental health professionals. Their qualifications, equal to those of clinical counselors in the civilian community, are enhanced by their ability to mobilize military and community resources as needed.
Importance of Command Referrals
Counseling referrals from command leadership are vital to the on-going success of service members. By referring troubled service members to FFSC counseling, it is possible to restore their focus on work — and possibly prevent troubling (and possible career-ending) behavior problems. FFSC counselors assist command leadership in making decisions about the best course of action for service members.
FFSC counseling clients are made aware that counseling services are generally private. FFSC counseling clients are notified that under certain circumstances — such as talk of suicide, substance abuse, family violence, etc. — commands and sometimes other authorities must be notified.
