Abstract : Job burnout and secondary trauma are serious issues for military behavioral health providers who are continually exposed to extensive traumatic material on an on-going basis. Job burnout and STS potentially increase turnover among mental health providers, decrease positive clinical outcomes with clients, and have negative consequences for mission readiness for soldiers. SupportNet aimed to assess the level of secondary trauma and job burnout among military behavioral health providers and to provide a pilot support system for providers working at with military trauma survivors. In the final year of the project, we completed the RCT data analysis and disseminated our findings to key stakeholders.
