What We Do

Psychology Service is responsible for the administration of four Mental Health Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Programs (RRTPs) that assist Veterans in improving their quality of life through the development of independent living skills and positive coping skills. The Service also oversees specialty mental health outpatient clinics for Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorders. Psychology Service oversees mental health staff embedded in the primary care teams as well. We provide psychological assessment services to help guide Veterans and their treatment providers in developing recovery plans to best achieve the Veteran’s self-identified goals. Psychology Service oversees the clinical practice of all psychologists employed by the Medical Center, and we operate a training program for doctoral psychology trainees, interns, and residents.
