The Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress CSTS is an integral part of the Department of Psychiatry of the School of Medicine of the Uniformed Services University USU. CSTSs activities support the USU Strategic Framework and the mission of the Department of Defense.

We achieve our mission through leadership, education and training, research and scholarship, service and outreach, and global health engagement to maintain readiness. In accomplishing our mission, we enhance national security and serve an essential role for the Department of Defense and the nation. We have been successfully fulfilling our mission for the past 29 years, since the Center was established in 1987.
