There's no stigma to needing support
Mental health problems are painful—emotionally, spiritually and socially—for all who are involved. You may be reluctant to seek behavioral healthcare. Too often, a person fails to get help until a crisis occurs. Your TRICARE benefit covers behavioral healthcare that is medically or psychologically necessary. There are many different types of outpatient and inpatient behavioral healthcare, and the coverage varies by the type of care.
