Compared to civilians, active duty service members are at increased risk for developing certain psychological conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol use disorder (AUD), and major depressive disorder (MDD). To improve the health and readiness of service members with mental health problems, our clinical and research psychologists develop and test treatments active duty populations.
Because service members suffering from multiple psychological disorders are at particularly high risk of negative health outcomes, our research involves developing and testing novel treatments for multiple mental health conditions. Other efforts within our Clinical Treatment portfolio test complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments for mental and behavioral health problems.
Clinical psychologist researchers support the health and readiness of service members by developing and evaluating treatments to reduce symptoms and improve functioning in personnel with psychological and behavioral health problems, promoting recovery and enabling service members to return to full duty.
