Frequently Asked Questions

VETERANS & FAMILY MEMBERS

If no Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic exists in your area, contact your nearest clinic to discuss the possibility of receiving mental health care via CVN Telehealth. As of September 2019, we have 14 clinics in operation and expect to have at least 17 clinics open by the middle of 2020.  The Cohen Veterans Network is rapidly growing across the country and may offer services in your state in the future.

The following resources may also be beneficial:

Vet Center: Vet Centers across the country provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to combat Veterans and their families regardless of discharge status. You can reach their around the clock confidential call center at 1-877-WAR VETS (1.877.927.8387). You can also visit www.vetcenter.va.gov.

The Veterans Crisis Line: The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veterans Affairs responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1. You can also visit www.veteranscrisisline.net.

If you are in crisis, our Cohen Clinics will see you immediately.

Otherwise, 94% of our clients (those who respond to a survey) report they were able to obtain their first appointment as soon as they wanted it.

Each new patient goes through an intake process. The first step is an initial screening that can take place in person or via telephone, depending on the structure and processes of the clinic location. The screening helps the clinic obtain general demographic information, reason for seeking treatment, and other questions related to a patient’s needs. The clinic coordinator will use the intake process to identify the best clinician based on a patient’s unique needs and will schedule an appointment.

Although we make a priority of serving post-9/11 veterans, each Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic will assess all veterans based on their specific needs, and we will make every effort to see pre-9/11 veterans based on clinician availability. Our local clinics will be able to provide potential resources you may be eligible for in order to support your needs.

If you are interested in receiving mental health care from the Cohen Veterans Network, please call or visit your local Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic to schedule an initial appointment.

Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics provide short- and medium-term outpatient mental health care support but are not intended to be long-term care providers. Clinics will also provide case management services to help connect veterans and their families to additional support like housing programs, long-term care, and acute or emergency care, as necessary.

All Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics track clients’ data to improve quality of care, clinic processes, and health care operations. Informed consent will be obtained from all clients in advance of any clinic research. All information about veterans and their families is confidential, and a client may opt out of certain self-reported assessments. Read more about the research and findings of Cohen Veterans Network and Cohen Veterans Bioscience.

All information about veterans and their families is confidential and is collected, protected, and stored according to standards set by federal law. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Defense, and other public, private, or government entities do not have access to identifying information about veterans and their families who are treated at Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics.

The Cohen Veterans Network is a not-for-profit philanthropic organization. All post-9/11 veterans and their families are eligible for high-quality, accessible treatment at the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics. There is no cost for the care if you don’t have insurance.

The clinics collect insurance in order to support the long-term sustainability and growth of the network as it expands. All funds collected from insurance go right back into providing care for clients at our clinics.

Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics treat veterans and their families for a variety of mental health issues including post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, anger, grief and loss, family issues, transition challenges, relationship problems, children’s behavioral problems, and other concerns. The Cohen Veterans Network provides evidence-based treatments such as cognitive processing therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, problem solving therapy, couples therapy, and prolonged exposure therapy, as well as connecting them to support and referrals for assistance with issues like unemployment, housing, finances, and education.

We prioritize serving post-9/11 veterans, which we define as any person who has served in the United States Armed Services (including the National Guard and Reserves) after September 11, 2001, regardless of role while in uniform, discharge status, or combat experience. We define family members as parents, siblings, spouses or partners, children, caretakers, and others. Although we make a priority of serving post-9/11 veterans whose period of service included Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and/or Operation New Dawn, each Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic will assess all veterans based on their specific needs and our ability to serve the veteran well.
