HARRISBURG -- The Department of Public Welfare (DPW) announced the launch of free online military and family behavioral health trainings for service providers to better assist service members, veterans and their families facing the consequences of the invisible wounds of war. 

The trainings are designed to better educate service providers, allowing medical personnel to help our service members, veterans and their families successfully transition back into their communities.

DPW’s Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS), partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Army One Source, universities, county and community providers, and other state agencies to address our veterans’ behavioral health needs.

The free programs are available through the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s online education system. 

For more information on OMHSAS visit www.dpw.state.pa.us

The trainings can be found at www.paprepared.net under “Military and Family Behavioral Health."
