One hundred and fifty years ago today, President Lincoln signed a law establishing the first federal veterans’ facility for disabled Civil War veterans. This facility gave root to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ assistance programs.

Today, the VA offers many benefits and services to eligible veterans and connects our military service men and women with resources across the country. Share this information with a veteran you know, or an organization that helps veterans.

The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at NYU Langone Medical Center provides free and confidential individual, couples, family, and group therapy for veterans and their family members regardless of discharge status, combat exposure, or era served. We provide treatment for posttraumatic stress, depression, anxiety, readjustment difficulties, relationship problems, along with a variety of other challenges military families may experience. Additional services include treatment for alcohol and substance use as well as assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury. Our highly skilled clinicians have deep appreciation for and sensitivity to the military culture and its unique strengths and challenges and are passionate about helping veterans and military families. The treatment we provide is flexible and integrative and is rooted in evidence-based principles.
 
Interested individuals can call our intake line at (855) 698-4677 or e-mail us at: militaryfamilyclinic@nyumc.org.

Not located in the NYC area? No problem! Our services are available via our telemental health program to veterans/reservists/National Guard/families anywhere in NY state or CT!
 
Telemedicine
Telemental Health Program at the MFC provides mental health care to veterans, service members (from any era and with any discharge status), and their families in every part of New York State who are unable to regularly commute to therapy.  Services are provided via computer or tablet and can be done in the privacy of one’s home.
 
TBI Program
Approximately 300,000 veterans sustained a TBI as a result of serving in the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; 57% were not evaluated or treated for TBI. Our TBI Program, funded by NYC City Council, is offering services to fill this gap in treatment. The service offers neuropsychological evaluations, which help us to understand the relationship between brain and behavior. These evaluations offer in-depth assessment of memory, thinking visually/verbally, attention, problem solving, planning and mood. The TBI Program also offers cognitive training, to develop strategies to work around cognitive difficulties. The training consists of 10 weekly meetings for 1-2 hours with a neuropsychologist to learn problem solving, organizational strategies and memory and attention techniques. The program also gives the opportunity to learn about how mood, sleep, and headaches can affect cognitive functioning, and strategies to work on these domains. The individualized treatment caters to specific challenges and strengths of each veteran, guided by the neuropsychological assessment.
 
Child/Family Program
Military children are faced with unique stressors related to relocation, parental separation, family reunification, and reintegration. These stressors may result in disrupted relationships, behavioral problems, and academic difficulties. Many children struggle to adjust to their parent’s combat injury (visible or invisible) or deal with a parent’s death. The MFC Child and Family Program provides individual child therapy, parent-child therapy, family therapy, social skills groups for children, and parenting support workshops. Expressive arts, games, and play are central components used to address and process concerns that impact the whole family. These services are offered to veterans and current service members as well as families of the fallen.
 
Couples Therapy
MFC provides support to couples experiencing relational difficulties, including conflict, sense of disconnection, problems with communication, and others. Although the majority of military families are strong and resilient, stress related to military service may affect intimate relationships, at times leading to serious problems such as domestic violence and divorce. Using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, our clinicians are here to help couples restore a sense of connection, safety, and intimacy between the partners. Couples do not have to be legally married to qualify for services. 
 
ADHD Assessments
We provide adult ADHD assessment and treatment for veterans and their families. Adult ADHD affects approximately 5% of our nation’s veterans. It can interfere with one’s ability to reach their goals in academics, their job, and even their family life. If you are interested in learning more about our adult ADHD assessment and treatment options call Dr. Spray at 646-754-4822.
 
 
Dual Diagnosis Program
Our Welcome Back Veterans Dual Diagnosis Program, a program made possible by the McCormick Foundation and Major League Baseball, offers flexible, integrative care for veterans, service members, and their family members struggling with addiction and comorbid mental health problems. Our harm reduction approach provides flexibility in setting treatment plans and goals, which may vary between patients. Goals may include reduced harm associated with use to abstinence, and treatment may include individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management. The option of offering family and couples therapy in the context of dual diagnoses treatment offers patients more comprehensive care and is aligned with research and clinical notions of the importance of attachment and relationships in supporting recovery.

NYU is offering free psychiatric care to military veterans, regardless of discharge type or era served. In addition to many other types of care, we also perform family therapy.

Secondly, we are also conducting a massive study on PTSD and traumatic brain injury. The study pays up to $530, and we need OIF and OEF era veterans (they do not necessarily have to have been deployed, as we need non-deployed personnel for our control group). People interested in the study can call 877-698-3299. Feel free to forward these handouts around. If you need anything else, don’t hesitate to ask. I’ve attached our website as well.
