The Department of Veteran Affairs has produced a toolkit for community mental health providers and an employment toolkit for employers and managers.

The VA is also developing a set of mini-clinics to help community providers learn about the important issues relevant to treating veterans.

Clinicians can also learn about military sexual trauma from the Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) study guide, Military Sexual Trauma (2.05 MB, PDF). One objective of this study guide is to raise awareness among clinicians of the breadth of issues facing persons who have been sexually assaulted or raped in order to ensure appropriate clinical care.

PTSD 101 has a one hour module on Understanding Military Culture. And a new course on Military Cultural Awareness.

Many providers do not screen new clients for having a military background. Learn how to do this here.
