What is the Home Base Outpatient Clinic?

The Home Base Outpatient Clinic treats Veterans, Service Members and Family Members affected by invisible wounds, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, mild cognitive impairment due to traumatic brain injury, substance use disorders and related conditions.

Our team includes Veteran Outreach Coordinators (VOCs), Family Outreach Coordinators, psychologists, social workers, traumatic brain injury specialists, neuropsychologists and psychiatrists. Our clinicians provide confidential and compassionate evidence-based assessment; group and individual treatment; couples therapy; and medication management. We work with each individual to build a unique treatment plan that is specific to the individual’s needs.

The outpatient clinic treats  ...

  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    PTSD develops after a person has been directly exposed to, witnessed or heard about a traumatic event, and involves a threat of severe bodily harm or loss of life to themselves or others.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    TBI occurs when a person experiences a head injury or concussion and has felt dazed and confused, had “their bell rung” or been knocked unconscious.

  • Military Sexual Trauma (MST)

    MST refers to experiences of sexual assault or repeated, threatening sexual harassment while on federal active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty training.

  • Major Depressive Disorder (Depression)

    Depression negatively affects how you feel, think and act. It can cause feelings of sadness and a loss of interest in activities; lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems; and decrease your ability to function at work and at home.

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Anxiety)

    Anxiety is characterized by long-lasting, excessive worry about life issues and day-to-day life. People experiencing anxiety often find it difficult to relax and have an inability to stop worrying, even in the absence of major life stress.

  • Bereavement-Related Adjustment Issues and Prolonged Grief Disorder

    Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one. For most people, the symptoms of grief begin to decrease over time. However, for a small group of people, the feeling of intense grief persists, and the symptoms are severe enough to cause problems and stop them from continuing with their lives. Treatment is available for this intense and persistent grief that causes problems and interferes with daily life.
