TRICARE's mental health care services are available to beneficiaries during times of stress, depression, grief, or anxiety. Counseling, psychotherapy, and family therapy are all covered benefits under TRICARE. The first eight appointments with a TRICARE authorized provider do not require a Primary Care Manager (PCM) referral, just your military identification card. Learn more about the services that are available on TRICARE's Covered Treatments webpage. Also, when you or a loved one needs help right away, Military OneSource offers several resources including confidential, non-medical counseling, either face-to-face or by phone at 1-800-342-9647. The Real Warriors program provides the Real Warrior Live Chat at www.realwarriors.net/livechat, where a trained health resource consultant is ready to talk, listen and provide guidance and resources. Or, you can reach them by phone at 1-866-966-1020. For more information, visit TRICARE's Mental Health Care webpage at www.tricare.mil/mentalhealth.
