SAN DIEGO — First lady Dr. Jill Biden visited the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Veteran’s Village of San Diego in Oceanside.

Cohen Veterans Network is a nonprofit that serves post-9/11 veterans, active-duty and their families through a nationwide system of mental health clinics.

The White House initiative "Joining Forces" aims to support families of service members and veterans, caregivers and survivors — something close to the first lady’s heart, since her son Beau was a veteran.

Biden listened to personal experiences at the Cohen clinic, which will guide "Joining Forces" by learning from their life experiences and perspectives.
