Mental Health Clinic for Veterans Opens in Torrance


The national nonprofit Cohen Veterans Network officially opened a mental health clinic for veterans in Torrance Thursday, its third such facility in the state.

“Many veterans, service members and their families in California may face mental health challenges that require comprehensive mental health care,” CVN President/CEO Dr. Anthony Hassan said in a statement. “As a result, we are here to support them in those challenging times through our Cohen Clinics. This new clinic in Torrance enables us to further deliver on our proven success — from across the country, and to continue expanding our ability to provide accessible, evidence-based mental health care to the military community.”

The clinic at 20800 Madrona Ave. is part of a $275 million effort by CVN founder Steven A. Cohen to reduce suicide among veterans and increase the availability of care for service members and military families. CVN estimated that more than 52,000 post-9/11 veterans, 6,000 active-duty service members and 10,000 military family members in Los Angeles County will be eligible for care at the clinic.
