Default overseas bases medical clearance

Will a military sponser be medically cleared for overseas orders if one of their dependants has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the previous base. what's the paper work like? does anyone know of bases overseas that carry facilities that offer mental health, medication, etc..
I figure a person with that illness would be too high of maintence for the miltary bases overseas. I know alot of overseas bases provide decent schooling for adolecents.

Incirlik Air Base is located about 7.5 miles east of Adana. Adana, with a population of over one million, is the fourth largest city in Turkey, and is the heart of a rich agricultural region. Approximately one and one-half hour's drive to the west are beautiful Mediterranean beaches with good hotels. The Adana environs are rich in historical sites, and there are frequent sightseeing trips sponsored by various base groups. Incirlik has a Base Exchange, commissary, food court, furniture store, hospital, dental clinic, and chapel.

I don't have much to offer except that Rob was there on a deployment and loved it. He would love to get orders for all of us to go there.

Good luck!

Before a family can be stationed overseas they have to go through an overseas screening (EFM screening). This is to ensure that services the family needs are available at the overseas installation. Noone wants to put a family in a situation where facilities are not available or a medical condition cannot be treated.
Having a dependant that has a medical condition will mean the dependant has to be included in the EFMP program. Paperwork is relatively easy to do...an exam + some paperwork...all in all a pretty painless process. The enrollment takes a few weeks to process and once enrolled the enrollment is good for a couple of years.
Whether or not a family can accompany a soldier on an overseas tour, depends on availability of services.
As not every base has specialized care available....assignments for families with certain EFMP needs are limited.
What sort of services (counseling/ pediatrics) your teen with bi-polar needs will make a difference in determining eligibility for an overseas family tour!
You are correct...DODDS schools overseas offer an excellent educational experience.
If you have a particular post overseas in mind - consider calling the school directly to find out what services are provided or contact your local on post school liaision to find out more information for you!

(I'm sorry...I didn't see you edited your original post ...would have answered you earlier!)
