CONTACT US email icon or phone icon (866) 948-7880


The PTSD Consultation Program is staffed by experts who are responsive and provide on target responses and references.  I feel absolutely confident whenever I reach out to them for answers.The PTSD Consultation Program offers consultation, continuing education, and other resources to healthcare providers who treat Veterans with PTSD in the community or in VA.

Consultation is free and is consistent with evidence-based practices for PTSD and consensus statements such as the VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for PTSD.

Contact us by email or phone to request a consultation. We are normally able to respond within one business day. We'll respond by email or set up a time to talk by phone at your convenience.

Our team responds to thousands of consultation requests a year. No question is too big or too small.

Our Mission and Scope

The mission of the National Center for PTSD is to advance the clinical care and social welfare of America's Veterans and others who have experienced trauma, or who suffer from PTSD, through research, education, and training in the science, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSD and stress-related disorders.

The goal of the PTSD Consultation Program 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.
