PTSD & TBI:
Steve A. Cohen
Steven A. Cohen is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Point72 Asset Management. He founded S.A.C. Capital Advisors in 1992 and converted his investment operations to the Point72 Asset Management family office in 2014. Mr. Cohen previously headed his own trading division at Gruntal & Co. where he managed proprietary capital for 14 years.
Mr. Cohen has a B.S. in Economics from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the Co-Founder, Vice President and Treasurer of the Steve & Alexandra Cohen Foundation, which is committed to achieving lasting and meaningful change in our community through children’s health, education, veterans, and the arts. Mr. Cohen also serves on the Board of Trustees at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles and the Emeritus Board of the Robin Hood Foundation.
Mr. Cohen’s support for veterans dates to his service on the Robin Hood Foundation’s (RHF) Veterans Advisory Board. RHF announced in 2011 that it was creating a program to aid the growing number of veterans, reservists, national guardsmen and their families living in poverty in New York City.
Mr. Cohen, already a member of the RHF Board of Directors, teamed with Admiral Mike Mullen to co-chair the RHF Hood Foundation’s Veterans Advisory Board.
To help provide additional support, in 2013 Mr. Cohen’s family foundation, the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation, gave the largest individual single private gift in the nation to fund PTS research.
“I’m proud of what we’ve done, but we haven’t done nearly enough,” Mr. Cohen said. “With Dr. Haas’ leadership, Cohen Veterans Bioscience will advance the science and availability of medical treatments and we will help more veterans tomorrow than we did yesterday.”
Cohen Veterans Network
Every day, many veterans and their families are living with the mental and physical scars from serving their country during military service. The Cohen Veterans Network was created to serve them by providing high-quality, accessible, and comprehensive mental health care. Through our client-centered, customized outpatient care, we support veterans and their families as they begin their next mission: healthy and happy lives.
At the Cohen Veterans Network, we seek to improve the quality of life for veterans, including those from the National Guard and Reserves, and their families. CVN works to strengthen mental health outcomes and complement existing support, with a particular focus on post-traumatic stress. Mental wounds are just as difficult to heal as physical wounds – and treating them is just as important. Through our national network of Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics, veterans and their families are eligible for free, personalized, and evidence-based mental health care along with access to comprehensive case management support and referrals to deal with other stresses like unemployment, finances, housing, and legal issues. Our skilled staff has experience working with veterans and their families. Learn more: http://www.cohenveteransnetwork.org
