This military behavioral health policy brief addresses the development of a high-capacity behavioral health workforce to care for our nation’s service members, veterans, and military families. A great deal of attention has been paid in the past few years to the impact of war on behavioral health. Statistics now abound regarding the numbers of service members who have been deployed, the common visible and invisible wounds, and the high need (whether acknowledged by those in need or not) for behavioral health services.
