Military Families Support Directory

WebMD is working with the White House on the "Joining Forces" initiative to support military families. Because of the dedication and sacrifice service members provide, we as a community have a responsibility to assist them and their families in the challenges they may face before, during, and after deployment. For military members, these challenges may include depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and traumatic brain injury. Meanwhile military families at home are shouldering the responsibilities of daily life on their own, while worrying about their loved ones who are deployed. The links below can help us identify these stressors so all of us can help support the resilience and well-being of military families.
