FFSC provides a wide range of information, education and counseling services, and is located in the Village Forum with the Navy Lodge.
In addition to the programs above, the FFSC has an extensive support system, which includes the following programs:
The FFSC offers confidential clinical counseling services to active-duty service members, activated reservists, Department of Defense civilians and family members of eligible beneficiaries. Individuals, couples, families and children are seen for a variety of issues, including couples communication, conflict resolution, parent-child conflict, grief counseling and trauma recovery. Services are short-term, solution-focused treatment, usually not to exceed eight to 12 sessions. Referrals to other resources are provided, as needed. All clinicians at FFSC are licensed independent practitioners with many years of experience in providing clinical care.
The information you share with a FFSC clinical counselor is kept in confidence and never shared with the command or anyone else without your permission. Exceptions to this policy include threats to harm yourself or others and mandated reporting of child abuse. Domestic violence can be reported unrestricted and in some situations, restricted.
Family Advocacy Program:
The Family Advocacy Program is a Department of Defense multi-disciplinary program that addresses the prevention, education, intervention, assessment and treatment of spouse abuse, child abuse (physical, emotional and sexual) and child neglect. The FFSC offers awareness and prevention programs to commands, child care providers, individuals, couples, families and community groups on issues of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and child sexual abuse.
Under DOD and Navy policy, the FFSC can provide confidential support and information regarding domestic abuse without reporting to law enforcement or the service member’s command. Restricted reporting means any verbal, written or electronic communication disclosed to a domestic abuse FFSC clinician, military medical health care provider or chaplain is protected information and may not be disclosed to anyone else unless the victim authorizes the release of the information, or an exception applies.
Eligibility: Any adult who is eligible to receive military medical treatment may make a restricted report of domestic abuse by their spouse, former spouse, intimate partner or former intimate partner.
Exceptions: Restricted reporting may not be available in the following situations: when there is an imminent threat to the health or safety of the victim or another person or when child abuse is suspected; when required for fitness for duty in disability retirement boards; for supervision of direct victim treatment services; when a military, federal or state judge issues a subpoena; or when required by federal or state law or an applicable international agreement.
