Mental Health & Substance Abuse


Mental (Behavioral) Health

Everyone reacts to stress and traumatic experiences differently. While some have reactions that can be seen as normal responses to life events, others may experience signs or symptoms of more serious conditions.
Mental health and substance use conditions can affect anyone; you are not alone. The Military Health System has many resources available to help those who need it.
If you or someone you know needs support now, call or text 988 or chat at 988 connects you with a trained crisis counselor who can help.

Targeted Care

Our mental (behavioral) health clinic offers targeted care. Targeted care helps us give you the right mental health support for your specific needs, whether it’s an individual appointment, group therapy or non-clinical support.

How it Works

Targeted care synchronizes and expands the resources we have to address your specific needs. The process begins with a preliminary assessment.
You’ll meet with a technician who will:
  • Listen to your concerns.
  • Assess your needs.
  • Match you to the best resource.
Options may include an appointment with:
  • A primary or specialty care consultant.
  • Military and family life counselors.
  • A chaplain.
You don’t need a referral, and you won’t be turned away or denied specialty care. Learn more about Targeted Care.
