Military life places unique demands on the behavioral health and well-being of Soldiers and their families. The goals of behavioral health research in military contexts include providing evidence-based strategies, knowledge, and interventions which enhance the behavioral health, well-being, and resilience of Soldiers and their families. An interdisciplinary approach—to include research psychology (e.g., clinical, social, industrial-organizational psychology), epidemiology, occupational health psychology, and psychiatry—is needed to advance theory and empirical knowledge of the relationships between occupational demands, performance, well-being, and combat readiness. The objectives of this opportunity include (1) contributing to the research agenda and application of empirically-driven strategies to improve the behavioral health and well-being of Soldiers and their families; (2) support the creation, implementation, and interpretation of research protocols; and (3) provide advanced statistical methodology for understanding complex relationships between occupational contexts/demands and Soldier well-being.
