Web-based TRICARE Assistance Program launches to provide mental health services for troops and their families

Today a web-based TRICARE Assistance Program demonstration has been launched within the continental United States and will continue through 1 April 2010. The purpose of the program is to test the use of web-based technology related to mental health. The new technology will deliver information and counseling services to active duty members of the U.S. armed forces and their families. It will also be available to selected reserve members and their families who are enrolled in TRICARE Reserve Select. Assistance counselors are available for confidential, private discussions about stress management (work, family or personal), family difficulties and pressures including separation and deployments, relationship and marital issues, parent-child communications and self-esteem.
