TACOMA, Wash. (PRWEB) March 26, 2018 -- More than 110,000 post-9/11 Washington veterans will soon be able to receive customized life-saving mental health care at no or low-cost through The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Valley Cities. This new location is expected to open this fall and will also serve veterans and their families across Washington through CVN Telehealth Services.
The expected wait between first contact and a first appointment at a Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic is less than one week. For anyone in crisis, the Cohen Clinic will schedule same day appointments. In person and telehealth treatment is available for a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment issues, anger, grief & loss, family issues, transitional challenges, relationship problems, and child behavioral problems.
“The rate of suicide among veterans is unacceptable in this country. We are joining the Pierce County community to save lives and save futures,” said Cohen Veterans Network President & CEO Dr. Anthony Hassan. “In partnering with Valley Cities, we will increase access to mental health services and work collaboratively with local providers to ensure veterans and military families are provided with quality care. We are also grateful for the tremendous support and warm welcome we received from leaders and stakeholders in Pierce County.”
