STRONG STAR Funding Logo
In 2008, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) awarded $35 million in grant funding to establish the STRONG STAR Multidisciplinary PTSD Research Consortium, the largest program ever undertaken to help armed forces personnel cope with combat-related stress. The DoD award is administered under the auspices of the Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Program, which is part of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) managed by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (MRMC).

In August 2013, as part of a National Research Action Plan for Improving Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans, Service Members, and Military Families, the U.S. Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded nearly $45 million to establish the STRONG STAR Consortium to Alleviate PTSD, or STRONG STAR-CAP. This award allows STRONG STAR to build upon and expand its ongoing research efforts with the aim to develop the most effective diagnostic, prognostic, novel treatment, and rehabilitation strategies to treat acute PTSD and prevent chronic PTSD.
