The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) announced that it is launching a medical care network  for wounded veterans and their families who seek mental healthcare. Warrior Care Network will expand regional outpatient programs and develop two- to three-week intensive outpatient programs that will provide individualized care for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Partners will commit $100 million over three years to treatment programs that will integrate behavioral healthcare, rehabilitative medicine, wellness, nutrition, mindfulness training, and family support.

The four founding academic health care partners of Warrior Care Network are: 

  • Emory's Veterans Program at Emory University, Atlanta;

  • The Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program;

  • Operation Mend Program at University of California, Los Angeles; and

  • Road Home Program at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

Each academic medical center in Warrior Care Network has committed to providing culturally sensitive, comprehensive care; sharing best practices; coordinating care among sites; and developing and delivering upon measurable health outcomes.
