The Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Soldier Suicide Prevention Initiative
Mental health professionals who treat active duty and veteran military service members require state-of-the-art training in effective treatments for depression, suicidality, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, anger, and personality disorders. Because of a shortage of professionals who have received this training, the number of American servicemembers who are suffering — and in some cases taking their own lives — during and after deployment is rising.
To reverse this trend and save our heroes’ lives, the internationally renowned Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research has begun a scholarship initiative to increase the number of mental health professionals trained to provide effective treatment to active duty and veteran military service members. Please visit our Training & Scholarships page for information about Beck Institute professional training programs and how to apply for a partial scholarship for the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Workshops at Beck Institute.
