Command Directed Mental Health Evaluation Quick Reference Guide - PDF file opens in new window.

This is a quick graphical training aid for Commander's to reference when recommending a Soldier for a Command Directed Mental Health Evaluation in accordance with DoDD 6490.01.

The Deployment Health Assessment Program (DHAP) is a Department of Defense (DoDI 6490.03) directed program that serves as a gateway to referral care, medical readiness, services and programs for Soldiers and DA Civilians in the deployment cycle.  As a critical element to the Army Ready & Resilient Campaign (R2C), the DHAP works to increase Soldier and DA Civilian well-being/resilience, and unit readiness through the early identification of physical and behavioral health concerns, which if not detected and treated, could lead to potentially serious outcomes.
