Developed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, this online community provider toolkit is aimed at delivering support, therapeutic tools, and resources to community providers treating veterans for mental health concerns.

The goal of the community provider toolkit is to enhance the delivery of mental health services to veterans through increased communication and coordination of care between community providers and VA. It provides information about accessing, communicating with, and, if needed, making referrals to VA, and also provides tools to assist veterans who are dealing with a variety of challenges, including military sexual trauma, pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), serious mental illness (SMI), substance use, suicide prevention, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The toolkit also includes sections intended to increase providers’ knowledge about military culture.
