About The National Council

The National Council is the unifying voice of America’s behavioral health organizations. Together with our 1,950 member organizations, we serve our nation’s most vulnerable citizens — more than 8 million adults and children with mental illnesses and addiction disorders. We are committed to providing comprehensive, quality care that affords every opportunity for recovery and inclusion in all aspects of community life.

The National Council advocates for public policies in mental and behavioral health that ensure that people who are ill can access comprehensive healthcare services. And we offer state-of-the-science education and practice improvement resources so that services are efficient and effective.

About the U.S. Department of Defense Center for Deployment Psychology

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) trains military and civilian behavioral health professionals to provide high-quality deployment related behavioral health services to military personnel and their families.

The CDP is designed in a “hub-and-spoke” framework with the headquarters at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in Bethesda, Maryland and satellite sites at each of the eleven Military Treatment Facilities that house established APA-accredited Psychology Internship programs. Under the direction of David Riggs, Ph.D., a nationally recognized expert in posttraumatic stress disorder, the CDP has developed a series of training experiences to prepare mental health professionals to work with Service members and families on deployment related issues.
