STAR Behavioral Health Providers: Military Culture Training (Tier 2)
The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Division of Addictive Diseases, The GA Army National Guard, Emory University's Brave Heart Program, Center for Deployment Psychology and the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University have collaborated to bring to GA the STAR Behavioral Health Providers: Military Culture Training. The mission and intention of the Star Behavioral Health Providers is to take care of the Service Members in Georgia and thier families. To do this, SBHP intends to recruit and train interested civilian behavioral health providers in military specific culture and treatments. A second aspect of this inititiative is to create a registry of these specially trained providers so that service members, thier families, and referring professionals can access those trained providers. SBHP will manage the registry to insure providers are qualified to be listed in the registry by licensure and completion of designed trainings.
The Tier Two training teaches behavioral health providers information about challenges and difficulties clients may present with that are often associated with military service. Tier Two is a two-day classroom training. As a reminder, to attend Tier Two training, you have to have completed Tier One training.
