The key to developing strong military spouses depends on the ability to link spouses to the information and support they need to adjust to a military lifestyle. While benefits and resources are available, there is still a lack of experience and inability to access an installation prior to arrival at the first duty station that stifles spouses’ ability to learn. This illustrates the need for a system of mentors to bridge the gap between new military spouses and information. Our New Military Spouse Support Program serves as a resource for spouses to gain knowledge and thrive on their new journey.
Founded in 2009 by military spouses with you in mind, we empower military families to thrive by connecting them with their civilian neighbors – both people and organizations – to create strong communities of support.
CONNECT: MSBHC seeks to connect military spouses with their peers in order to gain and give support and to share knowledge and best practices with each other.
ACHIEVE: Our goal is to help to ease all of the educational, employment and licensure hurdles that military spouses face as they navigate through military life while in pursuit of a career in the mental health profession. We hope to accomplish this by providing them with access to all of the necessary resources and support they need at every stage.
IMPACT: A mental health crisis exists within the military and greater civilian community. The rate of suicide and other psychological health concerns have skyrocketed, especially within our military community after over 16 continuous years of war. MSBHC seeks to help provide access to a culturally competent behavioral health workforce that stands ready and willing to help tackle the mental health crisis within our military community and beyond.
