What does the Clearinghouse do?

Simply put, we’re here to provide you with the right tools and information to keep our military families strong. The Clearinghouse will help you—a dedicated professional who provides direct assistance to military families—do your job. By taking advantage of all the Clearinghouse has to offer, you will enhance your capacity to bolster military family readiness, resilience, and well-being. We will help you identify, select, and implement the right evidence-based programs and practices to address wide-ranging family and mental health issues―from healthy parenting to preventing problematic and risky behaviors. Using our interactive, searchable database, you will find effective and promising intervention programs as well as practical resources and strategies to help you achieve your mission and ensure the welfare of our military families. Not only will you be able to take advantage of exciting learning opportunities through webinars, videos, and virtual learning communities, you will also be able to connect with other colleagues through our social media networks, including the Clearinghouse’s Facebook page, Twitter, and blogs.

Listen to Principal Investigator and Scientist, Daniel F. Perkins, Ph.D., describe how the Clearinghouse works to help professionals identify, implement, evaluate and improve programs that strengthen military service members, veterans, and their families.
