DSTRESS Line

I JUST WANT TO CHAT

The Marine Corps DSTRESS Line provides a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anonymous phone and chat and referral service using a ‘Marine-to-Marine’ approach.  The call center is staffed with veteran Marines, Fleet Marine Force Navy Corpsmen who were previously attached to the Marine Corps, Marine spouses and other family members, and licensed behavioral health counselors specifically trained in Marine Corps culture. DSTRESS Line’s goal is to help callers improve total fitness and develop the necessary skills required to cope with the widely-varying challenges of life in the Corps.

DSTRESS Line provides services to active duty Marines and their beneficiaries.  If veterans/retirees or non-beneficiaries in a Marine’s extended family call, counselors will help assess the level of stress and stabilize the current crisis, and then refer that person to the most appropriate resource (e.g., Vet Centers, VA hospitals, MilitaryOneSource, or other community resources.) Moms, dads, or other family members who are not beneficiaries should call the DSTRESS Line if it can help lead to increased resilience within the Marine family.
