Health Care Provider


Health care providers, both inside and outside of the VA health care system, can play an essential role in helping America’s Veterans access the mental health support they have earned.

Explore these pages to learn about the mental health issues that Veterans may face and access VA clinical training and resources that can enhance your delivery of health care and ultimately improve Veterans’ health and well-being.

Managing Co-occurring Conditions

Explore this toolkit, which provides information for the management of co-occurring mental health and traumatic brain injury conditions. Using this toolkit, clinicians will be able to learn about the most advanced care for treatment of patients with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury who are also experiencing an additional mental health condition, a substance use disorder, or chronic pain.

Managing Co-occurring Mental Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Conditions

Community Provider Toolkit

VA clinicians and staff within the Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention developed a Community Provider Toolkit to help you work with Veterans and navigate VA benefits.

Working With Various Veteran Populations

Knowing your client’s personal and military background can help you shape your treatment plan and identify appropriate resources and benefits.

Navigating Veteran Benefits and Services

Understanding VA services can help you coordinate care for your patient and take advantage of VA benefits.

In Clinicians' Own Words

Clinicians can use Make the Connection as a tool to engage with Veterans and their family members who may be reluctant to seek support.
