About the Project

The Project Team

Parenting for Service Members and Veterans 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 (T2) as part of a coordinated public health initiative to help Veterans and Service Members who are having difficulties. This free online course provides military and veteran parents with information and strategies to improve their parenting skills.
