Mission Debrief and Post-Mission Assessment (PMA)

Three months and then again nine months after employees return from mission, a doctoral-level psychologist from MCPS calls or meets with them individually to debrief their missions and administer the MCPS Post-Mission Assessment (PMA). The PMA, which was designed specifically for private contractors returning from hostile environments, measures PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems through a series of specific questions and directed dialogue. If our psychologists identify notable issues, they refer the employees to pre-screened local mental health providers. As part of the mission debrief, MCPS can also assess, for the benefit of corporate management, peoples’ satisfaction with their missions and their employer.
