provide operational leadership consultation, direct client services,
community capacity building, preventive, remedial, and support
services aimed at improving and sustaining the psychological health
of Air National Guard (ANG) military members and their families. As
a part of the ANG Wing Director of Psychological Health (WDPH)
Program, the incumbent of this position provides access to a full
range of professional services for the populations served. The Air
National Guard Psychological Health Program (ANG PHP) will provide
consultation to operational leadership on psychological health
issues and vertical integration of Military Service and Department
of Defense (DOD)-wide psychological health initiatives and
population-health monitoring. Clinical and administrative duties
focus on outreach, education and prevention, needs-based and
psychosocial assessment, diagnosis, short-term problem resolution,
and provision of or referral to evidenced-based interventions.
Responsibilities include providing: primary, secondary, and tertiary
prevention programs, specialty training for ANG health care
professionals and other personnel on issues related to the
psychological health of Airmen and their families, and multi-level
community organization, collaboration, and enhancement. Individuals
requiring clinical interventions (i.e., clinical treatment) for
other than short-term problem resolution should immediately be
referred to an appropriate and competent clinical professional. The
ANG PHP will contribute to DoD and Military Service development of a
strategic plan for delivery of comprehensive services to support
psychological health. It will promote the availability of and access
to an adequate continuum of care to ANG members. Additionally, it
will ensure clinical mental health services being provided are
integrated with other counseling and supportive services at the
installation level, and from Federal, State, and territory, as well
as military and non-military organizations external to the
installation (e.g., Military OneSource, Military and Family Life
Consultants, and TRICARE Network).

**Physical Demands:**
The work is partially sedentary and may involve walking, standing,
bending, light lifting/carrying, and operating personal computers
and other office equipment. There is occasional travel between
military and non-military facilities both within and outside the
assigned area to attend meetings, complete training, and maintain
unrestricted privileges. Considerable mental stress may be imposed
due to the highly personal, sensitive, and complex nature of the
services provided as well as the responsibilities involved.

**Working Environment:**
The work environment involves moderate risks that require special
safety precautions. Some work is performed in a semi-controlled
clinical environment that may be unprotected by a duress alarm
system or safety doors and other work environments will frequently
involve other locations both on and off the installation. The
incumbent is to regularly exercise (i.e. review and/or practice)
various scenarios to include responding to mental health emergencies
including potentially violent clients. This position may
occasionally require exposure to individuals under great personal
and emotional stress. Some degree of hazard is present in working
with emotionally distressed individuals and all precautions must be
followed to protect the safety of clients/patients, family members,
co workers, and the public in general while exercising the highest
degree of ethics. The incumbent must be completely trustworthy in
dealing with highly sensitive information. Additionally, there are
the normal risks or discomforts common to various office settings,
travel, collaboration with other professionals and
non-professionals, and military settings in general. Work areas
should remain adequately lighted, heated or cooled, and ventilated.
