Mental Health & Substance Abuse
The Mental Health Clinic is staffed by one psychiatrist, one licensed psychologist, social workers and psychiatric technicians. Patients no longer need a referral to receive inpatient services.
Given the significant need of the active duty population and our limited resources, we are regrettably unable to provide psychiatric evaluation or treatment for non-active-duty beneficiaries at this time.

Mental Health Initiatives to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19
Mental Health will continue to provide outpatient and acute services, observing social distancing and COVID-19 screening procedures to ensure safety.
Continuing Psychiatric Care:
Patients requiring continuing psychiatric care will remain in their barracks/housing and utilize telehealth care options. Some patients may require in-person care, and NHCL will continue to support that care. Patients are encouraged to use telehealth care options. Patients will contact the outpatient Mental Health Clinic to schedule a telehealth appointment or discuss care needs.
Outpatient Mental Health:
This clinic has transitioned to telehealth, meaning care is provided telephonically for all low acuity and stable outpatients. Patients can be brought in by exception for urgent care situations. Patients can contact the clinic to schedule a telehealth appointment.
Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP):
SARP remains unchanged. High complexity patients are being deferred to outside network hospitals as necessary.
