Help America’s Veterans reclaim the life they put on hold
Every day, brave service members and their families make sacrifices on and off the battlefield to protect our nation’s freedom. Yet, more service members than ever before are returning home with the visible and invisible wounds of war, which range from posttraumatic stress disorder to depression and suicide.
Their families struggle as well. Children with a parent in the military may suffer from anxiety due to fears that their loved one will be hurt or injured during deployment. Others may develop behavioral or physical problems stemming from their parent’s long-term absence.
Serving Our Veterans Behavioral Health Certificate is designed to train civilian behavioral health and primary care providers, on military orientation and specific issues affecting veterans and their families. It offers 14 self-directed, self-paced online courses that:
- Provide the latest clinical guidelines from the Department of Defense.
- Demonstrate applicable knowledge and skills through real-life examples.
- Emphasize cultural sensitivities to ensure clinical competency.
The Serving Our Veterans Certificate is a public/private partnership among the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the Department of Defense Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and Essential Learning to ensure that our exceptional veterans and their families receive the exceptional services they deserve.
Join a community of civilian providers that specialize in serving Veterans and their families. Make your services stand out as you fulfill the unmet need in your community.
