Provider Spotlight: Cohen Veterans Network
Cohen Veterans Network
Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics
Known for high quality, free or low-cost, personalized, and evidence-based mental health services along with comprehensive case management services, Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics are now participating as active providers in 5 AmericaServes networks. These clinics offer immense value to their communities and we are thrilled to have their participation in AmericaServes networks.
The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Cape Fear Valley is the newest provider in the NCServes-RDU/Fayetteville network and offers comprehensive mental healthcare, at no or low-cost, to veterans and their families coping with the invisible wounds of war. The clinic will work to strengthen mental health outcomes and complement existing support available through the network, with a particular focus on post-traumatic stress. This clinic was the seventh of its kind to open through the national Cohen Veterans Network. NCServes RDU/Fayetteville was alongside to celebrate at the grand opening event this July with Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Kyle White.
The network’s founder and namesake, Steven A. Cohen, became involved in veteran’s mental healthcare after his son’s return from a tour in Afghanistan. In 2016, Cohen launched the Cohen Veterans Network with a $275 million pledge to fund the project and 25 eventual clinic locations. Licensed psychologists, clinical social workers and professional counselors staff the Fayetteville clinic. They treat a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment and transitional issues, relationship problems and childhood behavioral problems. Anyone who has served in the U.S. Armed Services, regardless of time served, discharge status or combat experience will be eligible for high quality care. That includes those who served in the National Guard and Reserves. Veteran’s families are also be eligible for treatment services, including parents, siblings, spouses or partners, children and caretakers, regardless of whether the primary family member seeks treatment. All of this is available with the promise of very low wait times.
The Cohen Veterans Network’s mission is to seek ways to improve the quality of life of veterans and their families experiencing mental health issues. The goal is to ensure that each of the families are eventually able to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
