With the end of a war and as more troops are returning home, family members are still in need of additional support and re-integration skills at home. There are many programs that servicemembers and their families may ask about on base in their family centers, but one program available at no cost to you or your family is the Red Cross, “Coping with Deployments: Psychological First Aid for Military Families”.
War and separation causes many different types of psychological stresses and it is important for family members to be prepared to deal with these issues before they even begin. With this Red Cross program, families will be able to deal with the many challenges while home and once their loved one has returned from deployment.
“Coping with Deployments: Psychological First Aid for Military Families“ is a program that was created by the Red Cross to continue their commitment to serve military families. The program has been designed and available for use to military spouses, parents, children, and significant others. Useful information that is provided;
- How to strengthen your ability to respond to the challenges you may encounter throughout a deployment.
- Help in providing psychological first aid to those experiencing stress.
