Reservists returning from deployments in support of overseas contingency operations face unique challenges that can cause increased stress in their lives and exacerbate deployment stress injuries such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Traumatic Brain Injuries. Reservists, even more than the active duty service members, face immense cultural changes after completing a deployment.
 
To address these issues, the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) developed PHOP in 2008. Our mission is to ensure that reservists have full access to appropriate psychological health care services, to facilitate recovery, and to increase resiliency, which is essential to maintaining a ready military force.
