The DSTRESS Line is a USMC program for active duty, reserve, veterans and retirees, as well as their families. Callers will speak with veteran Marines, former corpsmen, or Marine Corps spouses with years of experience on 'the green side' as well as licensed behavioral health counselors who have been specifically trained in Marine Corps culture and ethos. The DSTRESS Line is an anonymous behavioral health counseling service that gives Marines, attached Sailors, and family members a place to call and speak with "one of their own." It is a place to call and talk about stress in daily life -from the common everyday stressors to post-traumatic stress. It is not a medical service. DSTRESS Line counselors won't diagnose symptoms, but they will work with callers to help with a way forward. The call lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Calling options from Okinawa are:
1. Dial 645-7734 from any DSN phone.
2. Dial 098-970-7734 from any Local Japanese cell phone or Local Japanese land line phone.
3. Dial 1-877-476-7734 from any US based VOIP Line (Vonage, Skype, Magic Jack, etc.).
