Knowing what resources are available is essential to navigating military life. Community resources and support can help military families develop skills to become resilient and cope with challenging situations.
Reaching out to community resources for assistance can:
- Give you the ability to make realistic plans for you and your family and take the steps necessary to follow through with them.
- Give you a positive self-concept and confidence in your strengths and abilities.
- Help you develop communication and problem-solving skills.
- Help you manage negative impulses and feelings in a positive way.
Wellness resources for the military community:
- Stay connected to family and friends. Build a support network through your Family Readiness Group, parenting support groups or other organizations on post.
- Military OneSource– is a one-stop shop, with an array of information on topics to include deployment, reunion, relationship, grief, spouse employment and education, parenting and childhood, and much more.
