You are here: Home Family & Relationships Deployment Phases

Families & Deployment

The military family deals with unique challenges and therefore needs special skill sets. This section provides tips, articles, handouts, and other web-accessible resources on family performance optimization grouped by phase of deployment: pre-deployment, deployment, reintegration, and post-deployment.

"Family readiness is imperative for service member readiness; therefore the emotional well-being and mental health of service members are linked to those of their families. Family well-being affects a service member's entire career from recruitment to retention to retirement." –The National Military Family Association (NMFA), 2006

Deployment

Post-Deployment
Deployment sometimes leads to outcomes that need extra support. These resources can help families and significant others cope with serious, persistent problems.
