Behavioral Health Resources

Guide to Behavioral Health Resources: This list provides information on the many behavioral health resources available to Service Members, their families, and other health care beneficiaries at Fort Sam Houston and across the San Antonio Military Health System. This site provides guidance from who to call, where to go for emergencies, to resources for assistance in accessing behavioral health assessment and treatment, to resources available to obtain support in difficult times. Included are national hotline numbers, contact information for all clinics at Fort Sam Houston, contact information for Chaplains, and more. This printable file makes a good handout to ensure all our health care beneficiaries have ready access to the resources they may need, if they need help.
