Please pass this information to your Pastor: “A new Resource for Chaplains and Clergy Supporting Veterans with PTSD Knowing the best way to support Veterans with PTSD can be challenging, especially in light of the vast amount of information in the news and online. If you’ve ever found yourself seeking out advice from colleagues or searching the internet for answers, you now have another option that’s just an e-mail or phone call away.  The PTSD Consultation Program at the National Center for PTSD is a new, free, one-stop resource available to chaplains and clergy members looking for answers about how to support Veterans with PTSD and their families. The Consultation Program offers free consultation, continuing education, PTSD-related treatment information, and other resources to health professionals who treat Veterans with PTSD, including chaplains and clergy members. The consultants are psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals who have many years of experience treating veterans with PTSD. They are available to consult on just about anything related to Veterans and PTSD and can provide useful resources.  No question is too big or small.  If you’re a member of the clergy and have a question about supporting a Veteran with PTSD, contact an expert clinician by emailing PTSDconsult@va/gov or calling 866-948-7880. You will typically receive a response within one day/ The PTSD Consultation is your knowledgeable, virtual colleague on all PTSD issues.

Thanks again for your partnership and we wish you God’s richest blessings on your Operation Barnabas ministry to all military connected people and their families.

In Christ’s Service,

Craig G. Muehler
