WHO WE ARE
Serving our nation is a hallmark of men and women in uniform. But deployments can be stressful times for service members and their families. Servicemembers often return from combat bearing the invisible wounds of war: post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anger, substance abuse, traumatic brain injury, and related conditions. For those who have not engaged in combat, the prospect of deployment can itself create an emotional impact that can also affect the emotional well-being of servicemembers and their families.
The Citizen Soldier Support Program (CSSP) is working to connect servicemembers and their families to primary health care and behavioral health providers trained to address issues that affect military members and the people who support our Nation's troops before, during, and after deployment.
Commander Charles Keith Springle of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, formerly of Beaufort, was killed May 11, 2009, while deployed to the Army 55th Medical Company Combat Stress Center at Camp Liberty in Baghdad, Iraq. The primary focus of his work involved counseling servicemen and women suffering effects of stress from battle, multiple deployments, and family issues. He volunteered for deployment to Iraq because he felt the greatest need for his services was there at the heart of the battle. He played an important role in CSSP as one of the first instructors for the program's PTSD training course for behavioral health professionals.
