VIDEO: Military veterans and first responders are coming from all over the world to Tulane, for a special mental health healing program. Tulane is one of only seven places in the U.S. offering an intense healing program that gives patients the ultimate VIP treatment. “This program is the most phenomenal thing that has started a lifelong journey for me and my wife and my family. They saved my life and they saved my family,” said Sean Gavitt, of Tennessee, who was an Army Specialist. Veterans and first responders are coming to the Tulane Center for Brain Health to learn to cope, and live with the chronic brain injuries sustained in training, and on duty. “I was hit by a truck, blown up a few times,” said Gavitt. “I was injured on three different occasions, but the worst on March 1st, 2019. I was out of my vehicle. I was struck by a passing motorist,” said Greg Peele, an Air Force veteran, who lives in Alabama and was injured during his years serving as a state trooper.
