The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program has received a five-year, $29.2 million-dollar grant from Wounded Warrior Project to further its work providing care for Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI),dd depression and anxiety.
The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program is one of four U.S. programs that are part of Wounded Warrior Projectâ€™s Warrior Care Network, a first-of-its-kind treatment partnership that provides world class mental health care to Veterans or servicemembers who served/deployed after 9/11.
The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program operates an intensive two-week outpatient treatment program. The program is a comprehensive regimen helping Veterans re-engage in daily life, while promoting physical and mental health and wellness.
Veterans and servicemembers from across the country who qualify for the program are treated at no cost, giving them access to a wide range of services including daily individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, wellness services, finance and career classes, and various recreational activities.
The $29.2 million grant includes funding to continue treatment for warriors and a capital grant to expand the Emory Healthcare Veterans Programâ€™s physical space and increase treatment capacity. It follows a 2015 grant from Wounded Warrior Project for $15 million to help establish the current program.
