Child and Family Behavioral Health System
The Child and Family Behavioral Health System (CAFBHS) serves as the Army Surgeon General's leading agent for developing, implementing, and sustaining programs that create a Behavioral Health System of Care (BHSOC) promoting healthy, strong children and families. Services are coordinated and integrated with IMCOM and FORSCOM resources using a Public Health Model that uses evidence-based interventions and standardized outcome measures.
CAFBHS serves children, adolescent and adult beneficiaries as well as retirees and their dependents (on space available basis) by offering time-limited, problem-focused, and evidence-based psychosocial treatment in the form of individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. Medication management is also offered.
How to Receive Services
Please see your primary care provider first. Your primary care provider will conduct an initial evaluation, at which time they may place a referral to CAFBHS through your electronic medical record. It is important that you have updated contact information in your medical record. Once the referral from your primary care provider is received, CAFBHS staff will contact you to discuss your treatment options.
*Please note that CAFBHS does not see walk-ins. If you require a same-day appointment you may call Army Community Services at (910) 396-8682/8683 to request to speak with a Military Family Life Counselor or you may seek emergency care at your nearest emergency room.
