Military, Civilians Partner to Treat Mental Health
By AP
FORT CAMPBELL, KY -

Fort Campbell is reaching out to the medical community in Kentucky to help address the challenges of post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury among returning service members and veterans. 
 
Experts from the military's top behavioral health agencies came to the Army installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line on Tuesday to teach civilian behavioral health providers from Kentucky about current research and treatments. 
 
Col. Paul R. Cordts, the commander of Blanchfield Army Community Hospital at Fort Campbell, Ky., noted that President Barack Obama issued an executive order in August that directed ways to improve mental health care for troops within the military and veterans under the Department of Veterans Affairs, but said the military can't do it alone. 
 
Fort Campbell also held post-wide suicide prevention training last week.
