Training veteran-serving community mental health providers in evidence-based treatments for PTSD and related mental health problems in order to increase access to high-quality care

To meet the need for community mental health professionals who can effectively treat military veterans, the STRONG STAR Consortium has launched the STRONG STAR Training Initiative. Led by faculty members of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (also known as UT Health San Antonio), this initiative works to train providers in the use of evidence-based therapies for posttraumatic stress, suicide prevention, insomnia and nightmares. As more community mental health providers are trained to competency in these therapies, veterans will benefit from increased local access to leading treatments that will help them maintain or resume healthy, productive lives.
