The federally-funded force will train new practitioners in the field of Psychiatric-Mental Health

Cohen Veterans Network (CVN) formed a groundbreaking partnership with the Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) and continues to advance the field of veteran’s mental health. The collaboration resulted as both the organizations honored with a federal Health Resources and Services Administration grant of $2M over four years to fund the joined force. The Cohen Veteran Network, Inc. is a not-for-profit philanthropic organization created to serve the military veterans a high-quality, accessible, and integrated mental health care. Through providing client-centered, customized outpatient care, CVN supports veterans and their families, with its next mission: healthy and happy lives. “There is a critical shortage of prescribing providers in mental health. In some areas, the access to qualified providers has so limited the focus is simply on availability. It is a secondary problem to think about the qualifications and training providers might have,” said, Crystal Shelton, CVN senior vice president for Clinical Programs 

Collaboration empowering veteran-wards towards education

•    The partnership aims to provide opportunities for up to six Duke University School of Nursing Psychiatric – Mental Health Nurse Practitioner students to gain invaluable experience through intensive clinical placements at Steven A. Cohen Family Clinics across the country. •    It’s been promised to increase the number to 10 students in the next three consecutive years. •    The students are also eligible for up to $20,000 in academic scholarships if selected for the placements. •    Through collaboration, Clinical Programs will be able to immediately impact access to highly-trained providers and share a mission with Duke to contribute to long-term workforce development for well-trained providers. •    Utilizing the part of the grant, DUSON focuses to provide state of the art training in evidence-based psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic treatment that can be delivered across both the lifespan and continuum of care. •    The collaboration will enable Duke Students to make a significant impact in the areas of the country where they are most needed. Sean Convoy, Duke assistant professor, and the project director said, “This project will allow us to work with CVN professionals to continuously monitor and evaluate these students as they progress in their education.”
