In addition to the AOS Alliance effort, Army OneSource launched two strategic national campaigns to increase the number trained Behavioral Health and Legal service providers in 13 pilots states which have a significant need for support due to limited access to resources and services as noted by key stakeholders, Military leadership and national trends.
As a part of the national effort to increase the number of Behavioral Health providers who are educated on military culture and the impact of deployment AOS launched a 45 day aggressive email and social media campaign titled: "Bring Them the Rest of the Way Home." Through this campaign, AOS is offered participating agencies in ten pilot states, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Alabama, Missouri, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Texas, Arkansas and Michigan, free access to courses developed by the Center for Deployment Psychology. The courses cover Military culture, the stresses spouses and children endure and the latest information on PTSD, empowering the behavioral health community to help Service members readjust to life back home. In order to take advantage of the free offer, the courses must be completed by 30 September 2012. To date there are approximately 35K course registrations from 4,266 unique users. In addition to this campaign, AOS continues to offer any interested professional access to free education on Military culture and the traumas of war through the "Treating Invisible Wounds of War" on-line training series.
