Telemental Health services at the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at NYU Langone Medical Center (MFC) provide 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. Telemental Health is an innovative and simple approach to providing the high quality care the MFC is known for.
In order to qualify, the patient must have:
•Ability to travel to MFC in Manhattan for the initial intake session
•A steady internet connection
•A computer, laptop, or tablet with a webcam, microphone, and speakers
•A quiet, private well-lit location for the sessions
Once these requirements are met, it is as simple as logging into a website or app at the time of the appointment and meeting with a therapist in a virtual office space.
Members of the veteran community who would benefit from telemental health include:
•Veterans and families who live more than an hour away from a military-oriented treatment facility
•Veterans and families concerned about mental health stigma who prefer the privacy of telehealth
•Veterans and families who are disabled and/or have difficulty leaving their home or traveling
Services address a broad range of concerns, including:
•Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
•Grief and loss
•Relationship and family conflict
•Military sexual trauma
