Military personnel, whether Active, Retired, or Reserve, seek treatment for many of the same issues as ordinary citizens. It could be a case of depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but they are all within the context of the demands of the military profession and culture.
Military families also have their own share of emotional strain. The constant leaving and returning of soldiers means constant adjustment to shifting roles and routines with each deployment or PCS. Thoughts of loved ones being in danger can also be stressful. Indeed, the stress placed on military individuals and their families is so intense that it highlights the importance of professional counseling.
The Department of Defense (DoD) provides TRICARE, a collective medical program that covers all active-duty and retired military members, active National Guard and Reserves, and their dependents. TRICARE beneficiaries can seek professional services for psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues at the program’s extensive network of facilities around the world.
TRICARE is also cognizant of the fact that with the huge number of beneficiaries in need of professional counseling, military facilities and services are not sufficient to respond to the demand. To address this, TRICARE allows military family members and Retirees, especially those with preferences for privacy and confidentiality, the flexibility to get counseling outside their facilities.
While the option is welcomed by many service members and their families, they may have difficulty finding a TRICARE provider, particularly a counselor who accepts TRICARE Prime. In response, the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) moved to supplement (with LPC’s) the current list of DoD providers which already included Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT). This effectively provides military personnel and their families the opportunity to work with independent counselors in the TRICARE network. More importantly, TRICARE beneficiaries who are family members or Retirees can seek professional counseling without getting a doctor’s referral.
From deployment and PCS issues to everyday concerns at home, stress can affect even hardened soldiers and their families. Don’t think that getting help is a sign of cowardice and failure. Know that it takes more courage to come forward and reach out for support.
