The mission of Star Behavioral Health Providers is to take care of the behavioral health needs of service members, veterans and their families. To do this, SBHP recruits and trains interested civilian behavioral health providers in military specific culture and treatments that focus on the needs of the military population.
A second aspect of this initiative is to create a registry of these specially trained providers so that service members, their families, and referring professionals can access those trained providers. SBHP will manage the registry to ensure providers are qualified to be listed in the registry by licensure and completion of designated trainings.
Who we Are
Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) connects military service members and their families with licensed behavioral health professionals who have specialized training in military culture and treatments shown to be effective with military families. We accomplish our mission by 1.) developing and administering no-cost trainings in participating states and 2.) adding trained professionals to a no-cost online registry.
