Battle-tested breakthroughs


The Suicide and Trauma Reduction Initiative for Veterans (STRIVE) provides free psychological treatment for current service members, veterans and first responders (e.g. law enforcement officers, dispatchers, firefighters and paramedics) without a military history, and their family. STRIVE uses cognitive behavioral approaches (CBT), such as brief cognitive behavioral therapy for suicide (BCBT-s) developed by STRIVE researchers, cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and prolonged exposure (PE); two treatments for PTSD.

Treatment programs typically last just one week to three months.
