Our History

Cohen Veterans Network was founded by philanthropist Steven A. Cohen, who made a $275M commitment to launch a network of mental health clinics in April of 2016 to serve veterans and families. CVN’s focus today is on post-9/11 veterans, active duty, and families, in order to get ahead of transition challenges before they become chronic or acute. Each Cohen 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 Care

Personalized care

We offer brief, client-centered therapy for a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, adjustment issues, anger, grief and loss, family issues, transition challenges, relationship problems, and children’s behavioral problems. Our high-quality care is centered on therapy options that are the current, best practices available based on research.

Confidential care

We will not share your confidential information with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or other public, private, or government entities unless required by law. We comply with federal guidelines set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Genuine care

Our skilled clinicians and staff have been trained to work specifically with veterans and their families, and some are veterans themselves. We build the trusting and confidential relationships necessary to provide excellent, personalized care.

More than mental health care

We provide support and referrals for related needs including unemployment, housing, finance, and education. Telehealth, and childcare are offered on a clinic-by-clinic basis.

Our Locations

Cohen Veterans Network currently operates 21 clinics, and plans to open 25 clinics by the end of 2022. We will always provide mental health care to post-9/11 veterans, active-duty, and their families, regardless of discharge status or service experience.  In 2021, the Oklahoman looked at the network as we reached the 19 clinic milestone.  Network CEO Dr. Anthony Hassan provides an update on where CVN is headed and how the cohesive, integrated clinical model fuels the system in this video:



The Community-Based Model

Cohen Veterans Network’s model of care was built with several core elements in mind, including access, low wait times, treating the entire military family and serving veterans regardless of role or discharge status. This model has proven to provide high-quality care at our first clinic at NYU Langone, which has operated since 2012, and joined CVN as the network launched in 2016. In 2018, the Tampa Bay Times examined how the first clinic was established.

The model was adjusted quickly at the onset of the pandemic. In 2020, Stars and Stripes took a deep dive into CVN’s pivot to telehealth during the pandemic. Today, we partner with 14 community based organizations to provide care across our clinic network.

The CVN Difference

Cohen Veterans Network was created for the sole purpose of treating all post-9/11 veterans, active-duty, and family members to high-quality mental health care by removing barriers to care. Network CEO Dr. Anthony Hassan explains how CVN and the Cohen Clinics are unique, and how that plays out in each community to improve the lives of military families.



Collaborating with the VA

As a not for profit, Cohen Veterans Network will never profit from delivering mental health care to veterans. The Cohen Clinics exist to save lives, save families, and save the futures of veterans and military families. Our intention is to work alongside local government, private, and community providers to help serve as many clients as possible.



Committed to Veterans

Cohen Veterans Network’s team members are committed to the mental health and well being of veterans and their families. In fact, more than 40% of all network staff are veterans or military family members. This video highlights the experience each client takes when receiving care from our clinics:
