Abstract : DCoE opened its doors in November 2007, and has since led a groundbreaking collaborative effort with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), civilian agencies, community leaders, advocacy groups, clinical experts and academic institutions to promote the resilience, recovery and reintegration of service members, veterans and military families facing concerns related to psychological health (PH) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). DCoE is part of the Department of Defense's (DoD) Military Health System (MHS), which provides a continuum of care-- from initial accession to deployment to discharge--for all service members.
