Addressing the mental health needs of veterans is a national priority, especially with respect to rural veterans. There is a compendium of literature that exists in regard to medical providers becoming culturally competent in treating veteran populations. Similarly, much literature also exists on the use of telemedicine, or more specifically, telepsychiatry in healthcare. However, there is a dearth of literature that examines the relationship between providers practicing telepsychiatry and their competency to treat veteran populations, specifically veterans in rural settings. Rural veterans are especially vulnerable to mental health difficulties due to the unique disadvantages they experience in comparison to their urban counterparts. This project aimed to evaluate how an educational curriculum could increase the cultural competency of mental health clinicians towards veteran populations practicing via telepsychiatry in a non-VA organization.
