CDP Presents: The Military Family Experience 2021: Results from Blue Star Families' 2020 Military Family Lifestyle Survey Online via Zoom
27 April, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: Data from Blue Star Families’ annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey (aMFLS) informs a deeper understanding of the psycho-social stressors surrounding military families. The aMFLS provides a comprehensive understanding of the experiences and challenges encountered by military families. Military families are, first and foremost, American families. As such, they are very similar to their civilian neighbors. Many need dual incomes to be financially secure, are concerned about their children’s education and well-being, and want to establish roots and contribute to their community. The unique demands of military service, however, mean families must serve and sacrifice along with their Service member, resulting in outstanding issues and challenges for the entire military family. Supporting military families strengthens national security and local communities, and is vital to sustaining a healthy All-Volunteer Force. Toward this end, Blue Star Families, with help from its valued partners, conducts a survey and produces an annual report on the state of military families. This presentation will highlight the latest findings and recommendations from the latest Military Family Lifestyle Survey.
Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, Veterans, and their families.
