Outpatient Mental/Behavioral Health

NMCSD Outpatient Mental Health is a multi-disciplinary department comprised of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, behavioral health technicians, trainees, as well as other ancillary and support staff dedicated to provide the finest mental health treatment to service members and beneficiaries.

NMCSD Outpatient Mental Health provides a full range of mental health services to include individual and group psychotherapy and psychopharmacology therapy for adults and children. Active Duty personnel and their children are the first priority to receive care through NMCSD.

Any Active Duty or beneficiary should initiate a referral to mental health care through their Primary Care Manager. Active Duty may also present to the Mental Health Operational Outreach Division (MHOOD) during walk-in triage hours from Monday - Friday 0800 - 1300 excluding holidays. If presenting at the self-referral station, a behavioral health technician will collect only necessary information to submit a referral in order to connect you to the best care to fit your needs.
