      Mesotheliom Resources

      Because Mesothelioma is a rare cancer and very few treat it, we specialize in connecting patients with doctors and treatment options that are best suited for them. Our services and resources are 100% free to patients and family members. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, and approximately 6,000 veterans afflicted with this asbestos-caused cancer died between 1999 and 2005 alone. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past.

      Website


      MesotheliomaLawyerCenter.org 

      30% of all mesothelioma victims are Veterans, usually being exposed aboard asbestos laden Navy ships. Help obtain financial compensation for treatments and quality of life; they also genuinely care about well-being.

      Free TBI Treatment Program for Veterans

      Free TBI Treatment Program for Veterans

      Approximately 300,000 veterans sustained a TBI as a result of serving in the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; 57% were not evaluated or treated for TBI. Our TBI Program, funded by NYC City Council, is offering services to fill this gap in treatment. The service offers neuropsychological evaluations, which help us to understand the relationship between brain and behavior. These evaluations offer in-depth assessment of memory, thinking visually/verbally, attention, problem solving, planning and mood. The TBI Program also offers cognitive training, to develop strategies to work around cognitive difficulties. The training consists of 10 weekly meetings for 1-2 hours with a neuropsychologist to learn problem solving, organizational strategies and memory and attention techniques. The program also gives the opportunity to learn about how mood, sleep, and headaches can affect cognitive functioning, and strategies to work on these domains. The individualized treatment caters to specific challenges and strengths of each veteran, guided by the neuropsychological assessment.

      The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at NYU Langone Medical Center provides free and confidential individual, couples, family, and group therapy for veterans and their family members regardless of discharge status, combat exposure, or era served. We provide treatment for posttraumatic stress, depression, anxiety, readjustment difficulties, relationship problems, along with a variety of other challenges military families may experience. Additional services include treatment for alcohol and substance use as well as assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury. Our highly skilled clinicians have deep appreciation for and sensitivity to the military culture and its unique strengths and challenges and are passionate about helping veterans and military families. The treatment we provide is flexible and integrative and is rooted in evidence-based principles.

      Interested individuals can call our intake line at (855) 698-4677 or e-mail us at: militaryfamilyclinic@nyumc.org.
