Aiding Families through Deployment

  • We are looking to create a set of resources that can be used to support active-duty families before, during, and after deployments, particularly related to the psychosocial effects of parental separation on children.

  • Please complete the following survey: (if staff, choose "other")

  • In our two-pronged approach, we hope to further educate and prepare pediatricians for assisting families during these times, as well as create a resource for families. We hope that by familiarizing pediatricians with, and educating parents on, the known effects of deployment we will be able to provide an extra layer of support for these children.
