A new medical center for veterans, families and friends will be opening in the next few months in San Diego. The Cohen Veterans Network (CVN) is opening more centers around the country, including one in San Diego. They are in partnership with Veteran's Village.
Steven A Cohen created CVN in 2016 to help stem the epidemic of suicide our veterans face. By 2021, CVN is expected to have 25 clinics nationwide.
CVN was founded with a commitment to provide high-quality mental health care for issues such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, transition challenges, and more. Treatment is available for any post-9/11 veteran who has served in the United States Armed Forces, regardless of role, discharge status, or combat experience. This includes services for the National Guard and Reserves as well.
“We welcome the entire military family, including friends and families.
To date, nearly half of their clients are family members of someone who served, including the families of current active-duty military.”
Cohen Clinics also offer support services to ensure clients have access to care, such as childcare during appointments, transportation assistance to reach the clinics, as well as night and weekend hours. Additionally, the Community Rooms in each Cohen Clinic have become hubs of activity in every location, featuring group therapy and other complimentary opportunities such as art workshops, yoga, and family activities.
CVN also uses tele health to deliver treatment for clients who can’t come in to a clinic. The network launched an online therapy platform in 2017 and video counseling services are offered in every state that has a Cohen Clinic. Ten percent of active CVN clients have had at least one session of care delivered via online therapy.
The San Diego clinic will be open by summer in conjunction with Veteran's Village.
