Hi CominghOMeblog Readers,
As this blog often speaks about psychotherapy, healing, and issues related to trauma, I thought it might be a good idea to pass on a note from my colleagues at the NYU Medical Center. Please spread the word to anyone you know who fits into this demographic! Even if you don’t support certain military and political causes, I think we can all agree how very important and necessary it is to support the individuals and families dedicating their lives to the service of our country. Thanks much, Carrie
The Military Family Clinic at NYU Medical Center seeks to fill the gap in mental health care for service members and their families who are affected by all phases of deployment and other life stressors.
We welcome veterans and active duty service members, mainly OIF/OEF, and define family broadly to include nuclear and extended family members—spouses, children, siblings, parents, grandparents etc. Family members may come for treatment even if their loved one does not wish to seek help at this time.
Our highly trained and dedicated clinicians offer confidential, compassionate, evidence-based individual, couples, family, and child/adolescent therapies as well as medication management, psychiatric evaluations and psychological assessments to address a broad range of concerns, including:
• Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Trauma and Stress
• Alcohol and Substance Abuse
• Grief and Loss
• Relationship and Family Conflict
• Military Sexual Trauma
• Readjustment Problems
• Parenting Concerns
• Children’s Behavioral or Academic Problems
Our commitment to working with service members and their families is reflected in our long history of working with veterans and military families, understanding their experiences, and finding ways to provide the most effective, compassionate treatment. All treatment at the clinic is confidential.
