Battlemind is both the mental orientation developed during a combat zone deployment and a program developed at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research Psychiatry and Neuroscience (WRAIR) intended to reduce its impact post-deployment.

Lawyers who have not been servicemembers may not fully appreciate some mental orientation issues that can be key to providing effective assistance to clients. It can therefore be helpful to reviewing Battlemind materials that are available to the public. These include brochures, briefings, instructor materials, and videos to aid Soldiers and their families with the stresses and strains of initial entry, deployment, and returning home.
