Veterans Program at Emory Healthcare
The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP) treats conditions related to military service: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), military sexual trauma (MST), anxiety, and depression. EHVP’s two-week intensive outpatient program (IOP) for PTSD has a completion rate of more than 90%, and more than 75% of patients see clinically significant improvements in their symptoms. EHVP’s IOP provides specialized care to patients with symptoms of mTBI and PTSD. Patients with mTBI have sessions with a neuropsychologist, receive cognitive assessments, and may utilize rehabilitation resources. With this BWF funding, EVHP will improve the mental health of at least 50 veteran/military households through hybrid and/or fully remote telehealth care to treat PTSD, depression, and mTBI.
