Navy Leader's Guide 


The purpose of the Leader's Guide is to help Leaders at all levels (CO's, XO's, CMC's, OIC's, Division Officers, Chiefs) recognize distress related behaviors, provide support to Sailors within the unit, and collaborate with supporting agencies to meet the needs of individuals in distress.  The Guide aims to assist leaders in the decision-making process by describing a broad range of supportive interventions, resources, and strategies for supporting Sailors in distress.  It also provides guidance on effective communications with Navy support team personnel.

The Guide is focused on assisting Leaders to employ awareness and intervention strategies before a person has reached the threshold of debilitating distress, as indicated by emotional difficulties, alcohol or substance abuse, violence or behaviorally linked accidents.  It provides guidance to leaders on giving emotional and material support to individuals across the continuum of distress, from a healthy and prevention status, to severe distress.

The Navy Leader's Guide app is now available for download on iTunes and Google Play and can also be accessed from both the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center and T2 websites.
