Military children are special. They make great sacrifices day in and day out as they support and provide motivation to the military parent who has chosen to serve.

During deployments, it is especially important that military children and their parents have access to support and information resources and programs. In this section, you will find resources and publications that focus on the special needs children have when a parent is deployed. Creating opportunities for the parent-child relationship to stay intact and grow, especially during a deployment, is critical. We hope this section allows you to find and utilize those programs and initiatives that meet your family’s needs and reduce the stress and challenges of being a military child.

A first-of-its-kind program that provides education and helps to bust the stigma of mental health issues among soldiers, their families, and medical staff to ensure that a greater number of military families receive the prompt and high-quality care they deserve.
