What happens after Marine asks for help...

Just wondering if anyone knows what the process is once a Marine has gone in and asked for help to cope with trouble sleeping?  Which I believe has put him on the list to be evaluated for PTSD?  His appointments are not very often and right now he is on a month long training. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks VPMM See More
