MF Mission and Vision
Mission
“Keeping faith with our Marines and their families.”
Vision
Highly resilient, program savvy Marines and Families,
robustly equipped with the services and tools they need to
meet an era of persistent conflict as well as the challenges of
day-to-day life in the 21st Century; especially during
transition periods associated with mission, life and career
events.
MF Tenets
Do the right thing. In all that we do, we are professionals and our service shall be
characterized by the highest standards of professional ethics.
Live within our means. Every dollar spent must result in superior program
support and measurable effectiveness.
Transparency. Our actions are focused and attentive but open to question,
inspection, or audit and cooperation, collaboration and sharing is highly encouraged.
Strengthen relationships. Wounded Warrior Regiment, Marine Corps
Community Services, and Marine and Family Programs depend on the organizational
strengths and contributions of many agencies. Marines and their families are served
best by full partnerships.

Way-Forward
Establish Behavioral Health Program (BHP) and Structure.
The Marine Corps BHP and structure will be created to serve as a
single point of advocacy to meet the dynamically changing and
complex needs of Marines and their families.
Hire and Grow a Ready Workforce.
Offering staff a continuum of opportunities for training and knowledge
development is a critical component for the future behavioral health
capabilities of the Corps.
Establish Program Oversight, Accountability and Transparency.
The BHP will be accountable to Marine Corps leadership and the
needs of Marines and their families.
Way-Forward
Adopt, Implement and Sustain Evidence Practices.
Evidence based approaches build trust with commanders by
ensuring Marines and their families are offered the most up-to-date,
empirically supported prevention and treatment practices available.
Implement the Institute of Medicine Mental (IOM) Health
Intervention Spectrum for Mental Health Disorders.
The IOM Mental Health Intervention Spectrum for Mental Health
Disorders provides an appropriate framework for integrating
behavioral health elements, as it complements the current Marine
Corps Stress Continuum.
Program Structure
Establish Behavioral Health Program (BHP) and Structure.
