In a non-emergency situation, if the soldier is depressed orsomething dramatic has happened (witness the loss of life, breakingup with significant others, other stress factors, such as legal, occupational,or financial problems), then a chaplain or behavioral health careprovider should be consulted, and the soldier must be referred to tobehavioral health. If the threat to the life of a soldier or fatality is imminent orsevere, then it would be an emergency referral.
