COMMUNITY PROVIDERS

Education Portal

Welcome to the VWWP Education Portal for Community Providers working with Veterans, National Guard and Reserve Members, and their families. We invite you to explore the online learning opportunities that have been gathered here for your use. We encourage you to check this site frequently to see if there are any meetings or training events in your area that would be of interest to you and your colleagues. It is our hope that here you will find the resources you need to serve those in your community who have served us so well.

Below are links to online learning sites that will provide you with training on military orientation and specific issues affecting veterans and their families. Through the TOPICS side bar you will find information and resources addressing the latest evidence and clinical practice guidelines in support of your work with veterans and their families.
