About Us

We help military members through times of transition

The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) provides the Military Health System with current and emerging psychological health and traumatic brain injury clinical and educational information. We identify gaps and prioritize needs in psychological health and TBI research, and then translate that research into clinical practice to improve patient outcomes. DCoE is a division of the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Healthcare Operations Directorate. DHA is a joint, integrated combat support agency that supports the Military Health System.

InTransition is a free, voluntary program with coaches who provide psychological health care support to service members, veterans and their health care providers during times of transition. Service members can call to self-enroll 24/7.

The Defense Department developed the program in response to the Mental Health Task Force recommendation (PDF) to help maintain the continuity of care for service members and veterans during transitions. Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) manages the program and its support coaches.
