Military Behavior Health Lab

The Military Behavioral Health Lab (MBH) is a unique lab focused on generating empirical knowledge and testing clinical interventions to address mental health and wellness issues that affect active-duty, reserve, and veteran military populations and their families. The lab builds on CoSW’s considerable expertise in working with military populations. In addition to research and outreach, MBH educates social work students about career opportunities within the Department of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Administration (VA), while training them to be the best candidates for those jobs.

Kyle's advice for a successful semester? Work with your instructor early and often! Remember that your instructor wants you to succeed, so if you’re having difficulty with the content, an assignment, etc., your best bet is to work directly with them.

"We would have never stuck with it or survived, had it not been for the ASK-VIP support groups."
