Nina. I'm running into you everywhere on here.
For those who may be interested, I called the counseling services office here and was told that both they and the MFLC offer the same types of counseling services. The only difference is that, like has been said, the MFLC is short-term and they do not keep any records. The turn-around for counselors is every 45 days. That means you'd see a new person every 45 days and have to start all over. I guess they assume no one would use that program that long.
While the counseling center keeps records it's for their own puposes. They do not report anything to anyone or give their records to anyone. Those records do not go into anyone's medical or personnel file. They are, like anyone else, mandatory reporters of abuse or homicidal/suicidal risks.
On another note, I really don't understand why the military operates the way it does. I do understand why various people need to keep track of certain aspects of the ADMs personal lives as they pertain to their jobs. But, I really don't understand why they are expected to get involved with really personal issues that have nothing to do with anyone's service, especially when it's nothing but accusation and innuendo. It's all very strange to me.
