Evidence-based psychotherapies (EBPs):

EBPs are very effective for treating various mental health difficulties (i.e., PTSD, Depression, Substance Use Disorders, Serious Mental Illness, Insomnia, Chronic Pain, Family/Relationship Distress, Stress). Each VA medical center offers one or more specific evidence-based psychotherapies for these mental health conditions.
