Reston, Virginia-based TIAG is supporting the Army Resilience Directorate's (ARD's) Readiness and Resilience mission (R2) as it enhances the Behavioral Health Survey Instrument (BH Pulse) with digital data collection through a web-based, mobile survey and online survey management system to assist Behavioral Health Officers and their commanders assess unit health, the company reported recently. "We are honored to extend our relationship with ARD," said TIAG General Manager, Charlie Doutt. "BH Plus is part of the larger initiative at ARD to help build resilience and mental fitness across the Army."
The R2 initiative was formed with a mission to maintain and execute a holistic resiliency and fitness capability for Soldiers, Families and Army Civilians in order to enhance performance and build resilience. ARD’s vision is to build an Army of balanced, healthy, self-confident Soldiers, Families, and Army Civilians whose resilience and total fitness enables them to excel in an era of high operational tempo and persistent conflict.
BH Pulse was developed at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, in conjunction with psychiatrists from the Office of the Surgeon General (OTSG), and is a survey tool that behavioral health officers use to provide commanders with an assessment of behavioral health across their formations. As part of this contract, TIAG will also perform data collection, data processing, data analysis, and report generation, the company stated.
