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.
