Accreditation Standards - PTSD Trauma Recovery Programs


The Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) funds a number of private and public hospitals throughout Australia to provide evidence-based trauma recovery programMes for post traumatic stress disorder. These programmes are provided on an outpatient basis.

In collaboration with the hospital industry, DVA has developed national accreditation standards for these programmes. The standards provide a framework for improving the quality of mental health services to veterans. Hospitals are expected to be accredited against the standards from 1 July, 2016.

Information on the standards can be found here, together with a list of accredited hospitals.
