The Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology and the Veterans Affairs Department’s mental health information section have developed an interactive educational and life-coaching program.

The website, www.startmovingforward.org, teaches stress recognition and problem-solving skills for military service members. In addition, it offers quizzes to evaluate stress levels and games to practice counseling progress.

Site users remain anonymous, and those with chronic stress can use the site as a steppingstone to getting face-to-face care, a spokesperson said.
