Jul 25, 2019


In this week’s episode, John sits with military psychologist Dr. Julie Kinn to talk about the latest behavioral health mobile apps and online resources developed by the Defense Health Agency (DHA). Dr. Kinn discusses how DHA’s technology combats the stigma present around behavioral health issues so that both veterans and civilians are more inclined to seek care. Check out some of their free mobile apps: Virtual Hope Box, Breathe2Relax, and T2 Mood Tracker. For more resources, go to www.health.mil/connectedhealth.
