- 400 health professionals and veteran peer counselors who work with active duty, veterans, and/or their families, have been trained in mind-body medicine
- Graduates come from 37 states
- Over 30 Veterans Administration Health Centers, clinics, military bases and institutions are currently implementing our model.
- The demand for CMBM’s simple, effective, non-stigmatizing approach is growing.
Research In Progress
The Department of Defense (DOD) has awarded the Center a grant to study the effects of mind-body skills groups on veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq
- The study will be performed at the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Healthcare System in collaboration with investigators there. We will be measuring the effect of mind-body skills groups on PTSD, anger, quality of sleep, depression, anxiety, health-related quality of life, and posttraumatic growth (positive psychological changes that can occur as a result of trauma exposure).
