    who do I contact for counseling

    for my son on a Army post. The anger and fits are just not working for me and I need to find someone who can help us help him project his feeling in other ways.

    Thanks in Advance

    I believe the Army Community Center can help (I think I got the name right). They should have a counselling section where your son can meet with a professional child counsellor who should be able to help. If yours doesn't have that, they will be able to tell you who can. Alternatively, medical can help. And also Military OneSource has counsellors available 24/7 but you're limited to 6 sessions through them (via phone) so getting something in person would probably be better.

    did you try militaryonesource? When my husband came home injured I was having a rough time with stress. I called military one source and they did all of the work for me. They set up an apt off post with a counselor and it was absolutly free and confidental! You should def look into it! It helped a lot!

    militaryonesource is a good start.

    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Call Military OneSource, ACS, or the chaplain. Any of them will direct you to the proper place.

    There should be the equivalent of a family readiness/support center on post who have tons of counseling services for kids and for parents (believe me, parents need it too!). In the AF we have a deployed spouse support group to help folks through deployments. Realize that what you and your son are going through are normal reactions to separations and that so many are experiencing the same thing.....and surviving it.

    If anything, just find a child therapist in the civilian community that takes tricare and make an appt. Then call tricare and let them know and you are good to go.
