UCLA Operation Mend offers a virtual program for post 9/11 era veterans and military service members suffering from symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Our three-week Virtual Intensive Treatment program promotes healing and wellness through:
- Comprehensive virtual evaluation
- Individualized treatment planning
- Evidence-based trauma treatment
- Cognitive skills training
- Skills-focused groups
- Peer-to-peer connections
- Caregiver psychotherapy groups
- Art therapy
- Mindful movement practice
- Social support from buddy programs
- Post-treatment support
Who is Eligible?
We welcome post-9/11 era military service members and veterans with symptoms related to trauma exposure or who have been diagnosed with PTSD with or without a history of TBI. After an initial comprehensive virtual evaluation, our team determines whether the program meets the veteran’s needs.
Are Caregivers Included?
We are the only Intensive Treatment Program in the country that includes caregivers as fully integrated participants. There are two treatment groups: one with veterans only, and one with veterans and their caregivers.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost to veterans, service members, and caregivers.
What happens after treatment?
Participants receive three weeks of provider facilitated check-ins to continue refining skills, building community, and transitioning to local care. Regularly scheduled virtual appointments with family case managers continue for one year following program completion.
