Purpose of Meeting
REACH-Spouse is designed to encourage military spouses to seek resources for themselves and their service members to help address any challenges they may face. We know from prior research that despite the abundance of available support resources for military families, spouses may not know that these resources exist, or may not be willing to reach out to them. Through REACH-Spouse, we aim to fill this gap by removing barriers to care and helping military spouses get the support they need.
10:30 AM- 12:00 PM Session 1 focuses on military spouses’ barriers to seeking mental health care, resources for addressing these barriers, and self-care practices.
Break for lunch
12:00 PM- 2:30 PM Session 2 focuses on the service members’ barriers to seeking mental health care and teaches military spouses valuable suicide prevention skills.
