What are the issues keeping military families in your communities up at night? Too often, it’s how they can find mental or behavioral health care for their kids. In this session, members of the TRICARE for Kids coalition will discuss the access and coverage challenges facing military connected families seeking mental and behavioral health care for children and teens. We’ll also discuss why community care options are essential for families of children with chronic and complex health conditions, and how inadequate networks and inaccurate provider directories can leave families struggling to find care. With family readiness a community responsibility (10 USC 1781b), how can host communities join us in advocacy to fill gaps and improve healthcare services and supports for military and veteran families?
