The National Center for Research and Practice, Military and Veteran Psychology was established in 2012 to enhance the quality of mental health services available to men and women in the armed services, veterans, and military families. The Center, which serves all TCSPP campuses and the larger community, focuses on providing practitioners with a broad understanding of military psychological challenges and supporting research and training that addresses the recognition and treatment of mental health issues facing this population.
Specific areas of focus are:
- Creating a culture of support for military psychological health;
- Enhancing resilience training;
- Preparing psychology professionals to provide high-quality services that adhere to the highest standards of compassion, commitment, excellence, professionalism, integrity, accountability, and stewardship;
- Providing training and research in a wide variety of areas affecting military members, veterans and family, including Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), stigma, sexual trauma, substance abuse, domestic violence, homeless, and suicide.
- Providing a continuum of services that is available to all levels and branches of the military, including active duty, reserve, National Guard, and veterans that addresses needs in prevention, early intervention, treatment, research and education.
