Military Mental Health: An Outsider Takes a Peek Inside |
Marjorie Morrison is a San Diego psychologist who took time out of her busy private practice to provide “pro-active” mental-health counseling to more than 500 Marines at the recruit depot there. Such counseling removes stigma – because everyone gets it, no one feels “different.” It’s designed to prevent mental-health ailments before they begin, instead of trying to fix them after they’ve taken root and disrupted lives. She details her fight and frustrations with the military's mental-health bureaucracy in a new book, The Inside Battle: Our Military Mental Health Crisis.
