Although Guard and Reserves make up only 38% of our military’s manpower,
we see surprisingly high rates of suicide among reserve forces.

Our Clinic Director, Dr. Leah Blain, sheds light on the distinctive challenges that members
of the reserve forces may face and how we can support them.

There are so many ways to stay-in-touch! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@MFCPenn) or contact us to learn more about our services, refer a client, or schedule an appointment.

Suicide can be a preventable cause of death.    In just 2 hours, we will teach

         Your plan offers a series of health coverage options. Choosing a health coverage option is an important decision. To help you make an informed choice, your plan makes available a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC), which summarizes important information about any health coverage option in a standard format, to help you compare across options.

The SBC for your current benefit design is available on the web at: http:/www./ibxpress.com. A paper copy is also available, free of charge, by calling 1-800-ASK-BLUE (a toll-free number).
