Approximately 2.6 million Service Members have deployed in support of Post 9/11 conflicts. 2 million children in the U.S. have lived through a parent’s deployment. An estimated 40% of those Veterans seek health care in community-based, non-VA and non-mental health settings.

It’s critical for professionals in these settings to recognize conditions such as TBI, PTSD, substance use disorders and suicidality, in order to ensure Veterans and family members receive appropriate care.

This includes police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, physical and occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and nursing professionals.

Topics in the course include post-deployment reintegration difficulties, symptoms and interventions for PTSD and TBI, understanding military culture, relationships between substance use disorders and wounds of war, risk factors and warning signs for suicide, and much more.

The trainings include short videos from combat veterans to illustrate key learning objectives, as well as clinical referrals and other useful resources. The training content is fully accessible via smartphones and tablets so you can participate from your home, office or anywhere else.
