National Council for Behavioral Health

The National Council for Behavioral Health is the unifying voice of America’s health care organizations that deliver mental health and addictions treatment and services. Together with our 3,326 member organizations serving over 10 million adults, children and families living with mental illnesses and addictions, the National Council is committed to all Americans having access to comprehensive, high-quality care that affords every opportunity for recovery. The National Council introduced Mental Health First Aid USA and more than 2 million Americans have been trained.

Provider Training (Military):

Increasingly, civilian practitioners are treating returning veterans and their families. Unfortunately, few clinicians understand the military – a culture of its own—and do not understand how to provide culturally sensitive and clinically competent services to veterans and their families.

That’s why the National Council for Behavioral Health partners with the U.S. Department of Defense Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) and Relias to offer the Serving Our Veterans: Behavioral Health Certificate.
