Any provider who treats Veterans with PTSD can ask a question or request consultation about PTSD-related issues. Watch our overview video to learn more.

**ALERT** We are temporarily able to provide consultation to providers whose clients (Veteran or non-Veteran) were impacted by recent natural disasters or mass violence events. Please email or call us for free consultation on resources, assessment, treatment, referrals, or any other questions related to helping your clients with the psychological effects of these events.


The PTSD Consultation Program, launched in 2011 to support VA providers, is now available to providers outside of the VA who are treating Veterans with PTSD. Our services are free.

Speak directly with experts from the National Center for PTSD about:

  • Evidence-based treatment
  • Clinical management
  • Resources
  • Assessment
  • Education & training opportunities
  • Referrals
  • Improving care
  • Transitioning Veterans to VA care

Program Scope

The VA PTSD Consultation Program for Community Providers offers education, training, information, consultation and other resources to non-VA health professionals who treat Veterans with PTSD outside of the VA system. These services provided are consistent with evidence-based practices for PTSD and VA consensus statements such as the VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guidelines for PTSD.

Our goal is to improve the care available to all Veterans with PTSD regardless of where they access services. We offer expert guidance on general issues that come up in the course of caring for Veterans with PTSD. We cannot, however, provide direct guidance or consultation regarding or assume clinical responsibility for specific patients; any potential liability would be only in accordance with the Federal Tort Claims Act.
