The initiative is made possible by a grant from the New York Legislature and is administered by the NYS Office of Mental Health.

Topic areas of note for the 2017 year include military cultural competency, women and military culture, EMDR as treatment for PTSD, suicide prevention, post deployment impact on children and families and reintegration.
