Dr. Anthony Hassan is truly a luminary in the field of military behavioral health with more than 30 years experience in/out of uniform. He’s driven change in the military, at the University of Southern California, and now in his role as CEO of the Cohen Veterans Network (CVN) – a revolutionary effort led by philanthropist Steven Cohen to radically improve the state of mental health care available to veterans in America.
We have a rich conversation in which we cover:
• His military career and why he’s so passionate about military behavioral health
• The Cohen Veterans Network and why they’re different.
• Misconceptions about veterans and mental health
• PTSD and why it’s not only a veteran issue
