Star Behavioral Health Program Trainings

In partnership with the Oregon National Guard.

The Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) initiative is a three-tiered training program supported by the Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP). Tier One is taught by SBHP-trained staff from Oregon National Guard; Tier Two and Tier Three are taught by specialists from the Center for Deployment Psychology.

Training Tiers Overview:

  • Tier One provides an introduction to military culture and information about the deployment cycle. Open to all service providers and community members.
  • Tier Two provides education about specific challenges and difficulties that are often associated with military service. Open to all service providers who have attended Tier One. 14.25 credits awarded.
  • Tier Three provides clinical skills that focus on evidence-based treatments to address some of the behavioral health issues facing service members, veterans and families. Only licensed clinicians, who have attended Tier One and Tier Two and have been accepted into the registry, are eligible to attend. Registry providers who have attended a Tier One and a Tier Two can attend all of the different Tier Three training topics.
