MFLC provides short-term, nonmedical “walk-around” counseling services to eligible military members and their families in the United States and abroad. MFLC services are intended to ensure that personal and family issues of military service members do not detract from military operational readiness. Through MFLC, service and family members have access to confidential counseling services with trained professionals who are not part of the military system. In addition, children, youth, and their families receive services through the Child and Youth Behavioral Counseling Program (CYB) which is designed to support staff, parents, and—with parental consent—children of the military, on topics specific to growing up in the military culture.
Passion for serving the military so that service members can continue to focus on what they do best—serving and defending the nation’s freedom.
Easily accessible, approachable and ready to connect service members and families with the most appropriate resources to address their issue(s).
Knowledgeable about military culture, responsive to a full range of service member and family needs, and skilled at short-term, solution-focused problem solving for everyday military and family stressors.
Able to demonstrate understanding, sensitivity, and empathy for service members and their families, including the ability to develop trusting relationships and to work effectively with individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The MFLC counselor rotation or surge assignment role is a full-time position that requires a commitment to providing 40 hours of services per week onsite at or near military bases. “On-demand” assignments are typically weekend-length commitments. Each counselor’s work hours are tracked, as is basic participant encounter information, but there are no clinical notes, no documented treatment plan, counseling records or claims/billing functions involved.
In addition the application and interview, providers interested in serving this program must:
Undergo program-specific credentialing process
Provide evidence of licensure and confirmation of education
Successfully complete a criminal history background check and fingerprinting
Successfully complete the comprehensive Magellan MFLC training program
Undergo and successfully complete government security clearances
