BACKGROUND The VISN 17 Center of Excellence (COE) for Research on Returning War Veterans in Waco, Texas, was designated in 2006. Congress instructed the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to designate the Waco campus as a Center of Excellence to focus on mental health/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) needs. The COE will allow the VA to consolidate personnel, training, and specialized resources in an efficient manner to improve knowledge related to treatment, prevention, rehabilitation, and clinical services to our nation s veterans, with focus on those veterans returning from Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF). The primary mission of the VISN 17 Center of Excellence (COE) is to (1) develop, implement, and disseminate research into the causes of PTSD and its effects on combat veterans and their significant others; and (2) provide education for health care specialists and administrators around improved methods of diagnosing and treating individuals with mental health problems, especially veterans. The COE serves as a major source of expertise on the mental health consequences of war to legislative bodies such as Congress, and it serves as an internationally visible focus of research activity on the psychological problems of combat veterans.
