Military families have long been the pillars of strength, yet the tempo of deployment over the past 10 years has taken a toll. Nearly 40% of military spouses experience psychological symptoms related to deployment, yet few evidence-based programs are available to support spouses. This gap between high need and limited services is heightened in states that are primarily Reserve Component and lack a local military installation.
The project aims to improve the psychological health of military families residing in civilian communities by developing supplemental mobile-accessible materials for HomeFront Strong (HFS), a promising evidence-based psychological health intervention for military spouses and children.
Develop and field test a mobile web application to supplement existing HomeFront Strong (HFS) curriculum.
