Comprising experts from NewYork-Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center, and Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Military Family Wellness Center combines leading-edge research on resilience in military families and traditional mental health therapies to help veterans, active-duty service members, and their loved ones. The dedicated clinicians and researchers — many who have worked closely with veterans and their families for decades — treat military service members, veterans, and relatives of any era, war, service branch, or discharge status.
