Pentagon watchdog finds military mental health system is not meeting the needs of troops and families


Recommended Posts

Thousands of troops and family members may not have access to the mental health care they need through their military or approved civilian health providers, a new Pentagon report says.

The Defense Department Inspector General found patients seeking outpatient mental health treatment often experienced delays or never obtained care at all due to inconsistencies in standards, inadequate staffing, outdated provider information and other shortcomings in the military’s health system. https://www.stripes.com/news/pentagon-watchdog-finds-military-mental-health-system-is-not-meeting-the-needs-of-troops-and-families-1.641299
