Mission Statement
Military and Trauma Counseling Network (MTCN)
The MTCN is dedicated to provide an online network of resources for active duty service members, veterans, veterans with disabilities, and their family members. The MTCN recognizes that more than two million American troops have deployed to the Middle East since September 11, 2001 in support of the Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation New Dawn (OND), and the Global War on Terror. More servicemen and women are surviving combat injuries than ever before due to improved battlefield medicine, post-operative medical technology, and better body armor. Many have experienced catastrophic physical injuries/disabilities (i.e., traumatic brain injury, muscular skeletal injuries, amputations) and serious mental health concerns (i.e., post-traumatic stress, anxiety conditions, substance abuse). The MTCN also understands that transitioning from active duty to civilian life as a veteran can pose many medical, physical, and psychological challenges for the individual service member and their families. Thus, ECU's Department of Addictions and Rehabilitation Studies stands ready to provide an online resource for those who have served as well as their family members.

Operation Military and Trauma Counseling (OMTC)
OMTC's mission is dedicated to provide research and resources for professional counselors and counselor educators that address active duty military and veteran concerns in the areas of medical, physical, mental health, psychosocial, and career/occupational, spiritual, and other areas related to military and trauma counseling.
