Each year, the Health Care Studio at MPA hosts a roof deck party to celebrate the end of summer, and to gather colleagues and clients from the industry. MPA uses this opportunity to draw attention to, and fundraise for, health care programs and initiatives that we feel passionately about.
Again this year, MPA’s aim is to highlight and assist Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program. Home Base is dedicated to healing the invisible wounds for Veterans of all eras, Service Members, Military Families and Families of the Fallen through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research. As a National Center of Excellence, Home Base operates the first and largest private-sector clinic in the nation devoted to providing life-saving clinical care and support for the treatment of the invisible wounds to include post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, co-occurring substance use disorder, family relationship challenges and other issues associated with military service. Since its inception, Home Base has provided care and support to more than 21,000 Veterans and family members and trained more than 73,000 clinicians, educators, first responders and community members – all at no cost – ensuring a brighter future for the 21st century warrior and military family. Headquartered in the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston, MA with a satellite location in Southwest Florida, Home Base is a nonprofit organization that operates on predominantly on the philanthropic generosity of a grateful nation; federal, state and local funding; foundation grants; and donations from individuals and corporations.
One of Home Base’s new programs that MPA will be highlighting at the event is the Special Operator Intensive Clinical Program for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This 4-day program is designed to treat our Special Operations Forces, such as Navy SEALs and Green Berets, who are dealing with post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury or other invisible wounds. In this Intensive Clinical Program, Special Operators receive close to a year’s worth of treatment in two weeks, allowing these elite service members to be put on a path of success that will compliment their ongoing care in their home towns. Some components of this program include:
- Comprehensive Evaluation
- Individual Treatment
- Group Therapy
- Stress Reduction and Resiliency
- Fitness & Nutrition
- Family Support & Education
- Integrative Therapies such as Yoga,
- Art and Tai Chi and Social Activities
Please join MPA and Home Base on Wednesday, November 6 on the MPA roof deck to support this amazing program and cause. Home Base leadership and Veterans will be on-hand to share their experiences.
