Keesler currently benefits from the services of a military family life counselor. This person is a trained, non-medical counselor who can meet a person (military, retired and/or family members, including teens and youth) and discuss concerns in a cost-free, anonymous atmosphere. No records are kept. Some of the topics or issues include deployment and reintegration issues, marriage and relationship issues, parenting/sibling and family issues, communications challenges stress and anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and daily life issues.
The MFLC encourages the individual to seek professional help if deemed necessary. After hours and weekend appointments are available; group and off-site meetings can be arranged. They do have a duty to warn in case a person shows signs of harming themselves or others. The individuals rotate on six-week schedules, though the contact phone number remains the same.
