Abstract (Summary)

This study addressed the effects of an educational intervention on Veterans' help-seeking behavior from civilian mental health practitioners. Therefore, this investigation measured the impact of a learning program on 81 Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) post-deployed service members using topics from the Seeking Safety treatment manual based on themes identified within the survey responses. Findings were ascertained through a group pre- and post-test designed study, the collection of data via Likert scales and data examination consisting of a mixed-model ANOVA followed by one-way ANOVAS. The researcher concluded that an educational intervention significantly impacted service members’ perceptions of seeking services from civilian mental health practitioners at p < .05.
