National Veteran and Military Families Month

November was first declared as Military Family Month in 1996. Since then, November has been a time to acknowledge the tremendous sacrifices our military families make. They contend with separation from their families and make adjustments to new living situations and communities. Military Families embody strength, resilience, and courage. Care of military families and children sustains our fighting force, and strengthens the health, security, and safety of our nation's families and communities.

In recognition of this important topic, the NCTSN has compiled a list of resources for military children and families, educators, and civilian and non-civilian mental health providers.
