Behavioral Health Focus Area- Army OneSource launched a formal campaign to encourage civilian health and behavioral health providers to complete an online course series called “Treating the Invisible Wounds of War.” This series of courses was designed to help primary care physicians, case workers, mental health providers, and other professionals – who may see a veteran or Family member on an unrelated issue - develop a better understanding of the culture in which Service Members, veterans and their families live and work. The courses also provide best practices for identifying, assessing and treating behavioral health issues resulting from the trauma of war.
Objective: To raise the awareness of civilian behavioral health professionals about military culture and combat stress.
The plan of action: Engage provider organizations and associations in states and communities. Encourage completing appropriate, certified on-line courses.”
