What is "Well-Being"? It is all the factors that affect the human dimension of our organization. As the Army National Guard changes to meet the challenge of its missions, both stateside and abroad, we must keep in mind the personal, physical, material, mental, and spiritual state of our Soldiers, civilians, and their families. Their “Well-Being” contributes to their readiness to perform the Army National Guard mission.

The focus is to improve and sustain our institutional strength by using a comprehensive plan that includes Well-Being focused initiatives, programs and resources to meet the needs of our Soldiers, civilian workforce, family members, retirees and veterans.

Army National Guard readiness is inextricably linked to the well-being of all its members. The goals are to provide a competitive standard of living; foster a culture, sense of community and record of accomplishment that creates pride and loyalty; recruit and retain quality Soldiers, civilians, and families; and provide an environment that allows personal enrichment, thus giving our leadership a strong organization primed for mission success.

If you are ready to take charge of your "Well-Being", check out the Army National Guard Guard Your Health website.

                 Deployment Health Assessment Program ( DHAP)

The Deployment Health Assessment Program (DHAP) allows Soldiers and eligible civilians to take proactive steps in protecting their health and well-being, as well as to improve readiness during the deployment cycle.

The Pre-Deployment Health Assessment (Pre-DHA) is taken prior to deployment, the Post-Deployment Health Assessment (PDHA) is taken within +/- 30 days of redeployment and the Post-Deployment Health Reassessment (PDHRA) is taken 90-180 days after redeployment.

Each DHA has three steps:

  1. Resilience Training (Comprehensive Soldier Fitness)
  2. A DHA-specific electronic questionnaire (DD Form) completed through the Medical Protection System (MEDPROS)
  3. A confidential, one-on-one conversation with a health care provider

Completion of each step in a timely manner ensures an accurate snapshot of Soldier physical and behavioral health during the deployment cycle, which may be vital information should injuries or health concerns arise in the future.
