CBT Training Scholarships

Soldier Suicide Prevention is a Beck Institute initiative for mental health professionals who help active duty and veteran military service members with psychological problems

Mental health professionals who treat active duty and veteran military service members require state-of-the-art training in effective treatments for depression, suicidality, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, anger, and personality disorders. Because of a shortage of professionals who have received this training, the number of American servicemembers who are suffering — and in some cases taking their own lives — during and after deployment is rising.

To reverse this trend and save our heroes’ lives, the internationally renowned Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy has begun a scholarship initiative to increase the number of mental health professionals trained to provide effective treatment to active duty and veteran military service members. Please visit our Training & Scholarships page for information about Beck Institute professional training programs and how to apply for a partial scholarship for the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Workshops at Beck Institute.

Established in 1994, Beck Institute has trained thousands of military and civilian mental health professionals in Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Cognitive Behavior Therapy stands apart from other forms of psychotherapy as a short-term, common-sense approach, demonstrated in several hundred research studies to be effective in treating depression, posttraumatic stress, and other serious problems that can lead to suicide.


To increase the number of professionals trained to provide evidence-based treatment, Beck Institute has begun a partial-scholarship program for CBT Workshops at Beck Institute.  Beck Institute offers a variety of Level I and Level II CBT workshops held numerous time per year. Visit Training & Scholarships to learn more about the CBT workshops and how to apply for a partial scholarship.

The Beck Institute also offers a number of other training opportunities to health and mental health professionals at all levels of expertise.
