About the Project
Moving Forward was built by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Mental Health Services in partnership with the Department of Defense National Center for Telehealth and Technology as part of a coordinated public health initiative to help Veterans and Service Members who are having difficulties. This free educational and life coaching program is based on a highly effective cognitive behavioral treatment program that has been used successfully with Veterans across the country.
We gratefully acknowledge our Partner Organizations for their generous contributions to the development of this program:
- VA Mental Health Services aims to insure that all Veterans have access to needed mental health care and advances the principle that mental health care is an essential component of overall health care.

- The National Center for PTSD aims to help U.S. Veterans and others through research, education, and training on trauma and PTSD.
- VA's National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention keeps Veterans well and well informed with news and information on health and wellness.
