The National Capital Area is a fast-paced, congested area with a high cost of living. As a result, Marines and their families may experience stressors related to transitions to new working environments, neighborhoods, schools, or post-deployment impact on relationships, family communication and reintegration. Licensed mental health professionals are available to assist families, couples, and individuals with the stresses of adjusting to a new environment. Relationship and interpersonal issues and other non-medical concerns are addressed in short-term individual, marital and family counseling for adults and children, and workshops for issues such as anger management, stress management and couples communication. The program also includes parent education and support, crisis intervention, domestic abuse and child abuse intervention and support, victim advocacy for victims of domestic violence, and treatment groups to address issues related to spouse and child maltreatment.

Programs within Behavioral Health include the Community Counseling Program (CCP), the Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC) Program, the Family Advocacy Program (FAP), which includes Victim Advocate services, the New Parent Support Program and Prevention and Education workshops and unit training, and the Substance Abuse Counseling program.
