Mental Health: Seeking Care with TRICARE

To link directly to this toolkit from your websites, use this link: [Health.mil/SeekingMentalHealth].

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mental health challenges are on the rise nationwide. A number of factors may be contributing to this rise, including COVID-19 stress and isolation. Mental health is an important part of overall health and well-being. The Military Health System (MHS) and TRICARE offers service members, retirees, and their family members the support and care they need. 

This toolkit provides materials aimed at nudging beneficiaries to take the first step by seeking mental health. Although the ways to seek care may be similar for TRICARE beneficiaries, toolkit pages are organized by beneficiary category/age. 


Mental Health for Youth, Teens, and Young Adults

In childhood, mental wellness contributes to resiliency and social skills, and is critical to reaching developmental and emotional milestones. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that pediatric depression and anxiety doubled during the pandemic. 

  • Parents and caregivers should treat mental health the same as physical health, and seek help early and preventively for their children. 
  • TRICARE covers mental health services, including delivering services through telehealth.
  • TRICARE beneficiaries have options for where and how they get medical and non-medical mental health care.
