The IBHS also offers connection and professional case management services not only to internal NCNG resources but to federal, state, and community resources for both clinical and non-clinical needs. Needs include but are not limited to: 

Assistance with entitlement and insurance enrollment

Emergency funds


Food, utility, and mortgage relief


Intensive Outpatient Programs

Outpatient mental health treatment

Partial hospitalization

Psychiatric and substance abuse hospitalization

The IBHS clinical staff are regionally located throughout the state and housed in armories and Family Assistance Centers so that access to care for our RC Servicemembers and their Families is maximized. The IBHS abides by rules and regulations of DoDI 6490.08 and state and federal statutes concerning ethics and confidentiality. The IBHS is professionally staffed, voluntary, and free!
