Majority of veterans in Florida are pre-9 11 but not helped by new charities!
There are 1.5 million veterans in Florida. The majority of those veterans are over the age of 50. Yet no one seems bothered by the fact that all the groups popping up in Florida will not even acknowledge how they need just as much help, but have waited much longer for it. They also happen to be the majority of the known veterans committing suicide.
Cohen Veterans Network opening first Florida clinic for post 9/11 veterans in Tampa
Aug 25, 2019
TAMPA, Fla. — The Cohen Veterans Network is opening their first clinic in Florida to serve post 9/11 veterans on Monday.
More than 230,000 veterans in the state will be able to get customized life-saving mental health care at no, or low cost through the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Aspire Health Partners.
The Cohen Veterans Network is a 501(c)(3) national not for profit philanthropic network of mental health clinics for post 9/11 veterans and their families.
The expected wait between first contact and a first appointment at the new Cohen Clinic is less than one week. For anyone in crisis, the Cohen Clinic will schedule same day appointments.
“After closely examining the post-9/11 veteran population throughout Florida it was very clear that Tampa was the ideal location to set up our first location in a state with a demonstrated need for mental health care,” said Dr. Anthony Hassan, President and CEO of the Cohen Veterans Network. “Soon we will be able to serve veterans and their families across the state via our confidential, online video platform. Our clients will be able to receive tailored, high-quality care from the new clinic or from home in most circumstances.”
