MISSION

To provide subject matter advice and guidance on all matters related to command climate and prohibited activities and conduct.

 

COMMANDER’S INTENT

Military Equal Opportunity (MEO) is a function of command. Marine Corps leaders must ensure their people are well-led and cared for physically, emotionally, and spiritually, in and out of combat. “Taking care of Marines” means vigorously enforcing our high standards of performance and conduct. We will hold each other accountable and address violations expeditiously, at the lowest appropriate level.

The responsibility of a successful MEO program rests with the commander. Commanders have earned special trust and confidence and are accountable for all their decisions, actions, and inactions. The Prohibited Activities and Conduct (PAC) prevention and response measures provide commanders the discretion to assess, investigate, and take corrective action to ensure unit cohesion and warfighting effectiveness.

Marine Corps small unit leaders, company-grade officers, and mid-grade staff noncommissioned officers (SNCOs) have experience, maturity, and close daily connection to our most junior Marines. These leaders are in the best position to lead, educate, train, supervise, and instill our high standards.

 

CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS

MCO 5354.1G updates Marine Corps policy, procedures, and responsibilities for preventing and responding to prohibited conduct involving sexual harassment, prohibited discrimination, harassment, hazing, and bullying.

Prohibited discriminatory and harassment practices within the Marine Corps are counter-productive, unacceptable, and will not be tolerated. The Marine Corps will maintain a culture of dignity, care, and concern in which all members of the organization are afforded equal treatment and opportunity to achieve their full potential based upon individual merit, fitness, intellect, and ability. All Service members will cultivate an environment free from PAC. PAC undermine morale, reduce combat readiness, and prevent maximum utilization and development of the Marine Corps’ most vital asset: its people.

 

HOW TO REPORT A PAC COMPLAINT

Chain of Command

The Chain of Command is the primary and preferred channel to prevent and respond to complaints of PAC. Use of the chain of command to address PAC exemplifies trust in leadership to quickly and effectively address violations of our standards.

Equal Opportunity Coordinator (EOC)

The EOC is authorized to assist with designated administrative duties pertaining to the command MEO Program.  EOCs may support the command MEO Program by standing inspections, assisting with Memorandum of Agreements, be designated as the command Survey Administrator for the Defense Organizational Climate Survey, facilitate prohibited activities, and conduct training, and provide MEO Program updates to the command. EOC’s are NOT authorized to conduct intakes or manage cases.

Anonymous Reporting

An individual is not required to divulge any PII in a PAC complaint or report. Commanders generally receive such anonymous information through electronic means, such as organizational hotlines or advice lines, CIG websites, the HQMC IG Hotline/Website, or other means of transmission, from an unknown or unidentified source.

REQUEST MAST

According to Marine Corps Order 1700.23G, it is "the right of all Marines to directly seek assistance from, or communicate grievances to, their commanding officers." A Marine has "the opportunity to communicate not only with his or her immediate commanding officer, but also with any superior officer in the chain of command up to and including the Marine's Commanding General."

MISSION

Media relations provides a method of communication with the public through the media. Dealing with the media requires the highest level of professional competence and sophistication. The public information responsibility is focused primarily on the accurate and timely dissemination of information to local area and national news media about the people, actions, and activities of the Marine Corps. This function involves daily contact with representatives of the civilian print and electronic news media. Although timely reporting is vital to a successful relationship with the civilian media, credibility is equally essential to a professional and enduring relationship. Requests for information in response to media queries must be responded to quickly, accurately, and candidly.

Embedded Preventive Behavioral Health Capability

 

Contact Information:

Elizabeth Medeiros MPH

EPBHC Analyst

1st Marine Logistics Group

Building 140121, Room 137

Office: 760-763-9371

 

 

Mission

The Embedded Preventive Behavioral Health Capability (EPBHC, pronounced “epic”) is comprised of civilian behavioral and public health professionals who serve in the active-duty Fleet Marine Force, Marine Forces Reserve, and at the Marine Corps Recruit Depots. They provide Commanders with analytic and coordination support of unit-wide behavioral health prevention strategies.

The impact of behavioral health issues on a unit’s readiness and resiliency is complex and requires a cross-functional, multi-pronged approach to prevention. EPBHC’s mission is to advise, inform, and support Commanders in the coordination of strategies and resources to optimize unit resilience and readiness.

 

 

Concept of Operations

EPBHC personnel are Special Staff Officers to the MEF Commanding General, the Commanding Generals of Major Subordinate Commands (MSC), and regimental/group commanders. Each MEF has an EPBHC Director and an EPBHC Analyst embedded at the MEF level, EPBHC Analysts embedded at the MSC level, and EPBHC Prevention Specialists embedded at the Major Subordinate Element (MSE) level.

EPBHC provide Commanders a macro perspective achieved through collaborative and improved communications, integration of prevention activities, and streamlined analyses and information. In accordance with MCO 1700.41, EPBHC Analysts collect population-based behavioral health information, prepare and provide reports based on statistical analysis, identify unit trends, collaborate with unit-level prevention specialists, collaborate and coordinate with installation Behavioral Health programs, and identify risks and protective factors.

EPBHC applies public health community-based approaches to address the complexity and interplay of risk and protective factors through the continuum of prevention. EPBHC works closely with commanders and the command to systematically determine need, rapidly identify emerging trends, and develop courses of action to enhance resiliency and mitigate risk factors that possess the potential to degrade the wellness of Marines and Sailors, their families, and ultimately, the readiness of the Marine Corps.
