The American Red Cross is hosting COVID-19 specific stress-relieving online programs for military families and veterans. This program advises on managing stress, health, supporting children, creating goals, and making a family communication plan.
Although the military community is accustomed to handling constant change and uncertainty, COVID-19 is adding a host of different stressors. They are finding themselves in situations where families may have delayed reunions, uncertain deployment schedules, veterans are having to seek out broader support systems, difficulty accessing community resources, and many other unique issues. You can learn more about the workshops here.
Virtual Interview available with a South Carolina Red Cross Volunteer who is also a doctor and helps facilitate the workshops. Available today from 12-2 p.m and Friday 12-5 p.m. Call to set up a time.
Melissa Milanak, PhD.
Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about how the Red Cross is helping combat the sting of isolation and stress felt by military families and veterans during COVID-19.
