Military behavioral health has become a major cause for concern for the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs in recent years. In 2012, more active duty U.S. soldiers committed suicide than died in combat. And 1.3 million veterans currently receive mental health care at the VA.

These statistics have led to a dramatic call to action and Military Behavioral Health will prevent and address these invisible wounds plaguing soldiers and veterans today. Military Behavioral Healthcare Forum will ensure our attendees have a clear and comprehensive understanding of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, suicide, and substance abuse. We will discuss the implications and preventative measures that may be taken to decrease behavioral health problems.

Military Behavioral Health will also explore the impact families have on behavioral issues and how behavioral health impacts veteran homelessness. Military Behavioral Health will bring together military medical professionals, leading researchers, and the best civilian practitioners to understand and overcome these pressing health issues. There is still much to be learned in the field of military behavioral health and we will discuss the major concerns for psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.

Key Topics Covered Include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury / Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Impact Family has on Behavioral Problems and Vice Versa
  • Prevention and Treatment of Depression
  • Combatting Substance Abuse
  • Behavioral Health as it Relates to Veteran Homelessness

Attendees Will:

  • Receive updates on how the DoD and VA are working to provide quality behavioral health care pre-deployment through reintegration
  • Access the latest research and treatment options for post-deployment mental health conditions
  • Receive insight and training on understanding the problems and mindset of troops with behavioral health issues
