WALTHAM, Mass. (ABC4 News) – The National Center for Veterans Studies (NCVS) at the University of Utah announced a new partnership as it works to provide a non-medication psychological treatment to veterans or military members who are struggling with PTSD.
The center is partnering with RallyPoint, an online platform and professional network for active servicemembers and veterans described as “LinkedIn on steroids” by Forbes Magazine.
By partnering with the website, the university hopes to increase enrollment in the program.
The treatment, cognitive processing therapy, involves undertaking a dozen one-hour appointments. The therapy is one of several potential treatments that are approved and recommended by the Department of Defense and the Veteran’s Affairs Office.
