About Us

The Marine Corps DSTRESS Line is a 24/7, anonymous phone and chat counseling service with a ‘Marine-to-Marine’ approach.  The call center is staffed with veteran Marines, former FMF Corpsmen, Marine Corps family members, and licensed clinicians with specific training in Marine Corps culture.

WHO

The DSTRESS Line is available to all Marines, attached Sailors, and family members.

Callers can speak with veteran Marines, former FMF corpsmen with years of experience on 'the green side', Marine Corps spouses or other family members, and licensed behavioral health clinical counselors who have taken Marine Corps-specific training to understand our culture.

WHAT

The DSTRESS Line is an anonymous behavioral health counseling service that gives Marines, attached Sailors, and family members a place to call and speak with "one of their own."  It's a place to call and talk about stress in our lives—from the common everyday stressors to post-traumatic stress to life-threatening crises.   It's non-medical.  DSTRESS Line counselors won't diagnose symptoms, but they will work with callers to help with a way forward.

WHERE

The DSTRESS Line is Corps-wide, available around the globe through an international phone number or this website.

WHEN

The DSTRESS Line is open 24/7/365.

WHY

Marines want to talk with someone who understands them as a Marine. The DSTRESS Line provides Marines, attached Sailors, and family members with a place to call and speak with 'one of their own.'  It is a place to call and talk about problems before they turn into a crisis.

The DSTRESS Line helps callers increase total fitness and develop the necessary skills required to cope with the widely varying challenges of life in the Corps.
