From the Frontlines

Welcome to our “ground truth” counselor contribution series – From the Frontlines – our own professional journal for the MHNGS MFLC Team.  Here we will feature the writing of our SPAs from around the globe as they provide insight into the Tactics, Techniques  Procedures (TTPs) used, lessons learned, and victories accomplished while serving on our team.

Check back frequently as we post the submissions of our SPA team members from around the world – and be sure to join the conversation!

Have a topic you’d like to write about? Please use the link on this page to offer submissions – making this a vibrant platform for honest conversation and collaboration within our team.  Each month we’ll be soliciting submissions on a particular topic of interest, but don’t let that stop you from thinking outside the box.  Also, we’ll soon be launching a monthly essay contest related to key issues facing our program.  We look forward to reading your submissions!
