Eligibility: Veteran-Serving Community-Based licensed mental health providers. Those who work as part of an agency must receive agency approval to participate. Multiple providers per organization are eligible and encouraged to apply.

Not Eligible: Mental Health Providers who provide services at a VA Medical Hospital or Department of Defense Military Treatment Facility.
