Roughly eight out of every 100 people will experience post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lifetime, and almost 500,000 of the Veterans treated by VA have a primary or secondary diagnosis of PTSD. One of the best kept secrets of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is the PTSD Consultation Program at the National Center for PTSD. The PTSD Consultation Program is valuable for anyone providing mental health support within or outside of VA because all of its services and resources are free, and the consultants are leaders and innovators in PTSD treatment and research. To use the free PTSD Consultation Program resources, providers who treat Veterans can email the PTSD Consultation Program at PTSDconsult@va.gov, call 866-948-7880.
