McConnell AFB Mental Health Services
Our facility offers the following mental health services:
Mental Health Clinic
Our clinical social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists provide a variety of mental health services available to all active duty service members and National Guard or Reserve members on AGR orders. Services include treatment of adults and couples, as well as psychological testing and medication management. Off-base referrals can be made as the need arises.
Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment (ADAPT)
- The Air Force Medical Service recognizes alcoholism and drug addiction as progressive and often chronic disorders that affect entire families and are both preventable and treatable. Treatment, management, and rehabilitation services are provided at McConnell AFB through the ADAPT program for active duty service members and National Guard or Reserve members on AGR orders.
- One-time evaluations for civilians and non-AGR National Guard and Reserve members can be scheduled on a case-by-case basis. Please call the clinic to get more information regarding this type of evaluations.
Family Advocacy Program (FAP)
- Our mission is to build healthy Air Force communities by developing, implementing, and evaluating policies and programs designed to prevent, intervene, and treat child and spouse maltreatment.
- The Family Advocacy Program has three main components: Outreach, Prevention and Maltreatment response. They are holistically designed to increase family cohesion, improve parenting skills, communication, enhance social networking, and promote community awareness. This is accomplished through psychoeducational briefings, educational classes, support groups, and special theme events throughout the year.
- Parenting, Anger Management and SSTAR classes are available as well as Family Advocacy Strength Based Therapy (FAST). FAST is individual, couple or family counseling sessions designed for prevention and not document in the electronic medical record.
