For five years, the Veterans Health Administration has been working with Prevail Health Solutions under a series of National Science Foundation grants to lay the groundwork for the Vets PrevailSM program, a new way of bringing mental health support to US Military Veterans. Now, with the generous support of Goldman Sachs Gives, the Robin Hood Foundation. the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation and PepsiCo, Vets Prevail has shown proven results across numerous pilots and clinical evaluations. Vets Prevail is an online program featuring dynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-based e-learning lessons and peer-to-peer support. When needed, the program facilitates intelligent routing from the Vets Prevail platform into a number of established Veterans Health Administration resources. The result is a full-spectrum mental health solution that is easily accessible, stigma-free and complements existing Veterans Administration and Department of Defense systems.
Vets Prevail is an innovative new online mental health tool that is tailored specifically to today's Veterans, helping ease transition to life after military service and tackle post deployment re-adjustment challenges. Employing cutting edge technology, the program creates engagement through dynamically tailored interactions. The core content is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the standard of care for treatment of symptoms related to PTSD and depression. The program incorporates interactive multimedia e-learning lessons, peer support, diagnostic self-assessments, and proprietary software for scheduling and tracking user activities, thoughts, and feelings. Vets Prevail was developed through the collaboration of mental health researchers and clinicians at top universities and hospitals with the backing of the National Science Foundation and The McCormick Foundation.
Change and recovery is possible, and Vets Prevail is a tool that can help fulfill this promise for our returning Veterans. It is a best-in-class, scalable solution with capacity and reach far beyond any traditional mental health offering, at a fraction of the cost.
