The goal is to build spouses' resilience to cope with reintegration challenges, help them serve as a support system for returning service members, and ease the transition for families post-deployment.  The program is based on the Department of Defense (DoD) face-to-face post deployment Soldier and Spouse BATTLEMIND programs and targets readjustment concepts based on the letters in the word “BATTLEMIND.”

The consequences of deployment and combat exposure can affect marriage and families negatively.  The study will offer spouses support post-deployment, when reintegration challenges typically surface and are likely to affect family relationships.  The study will determine whether telephone groups can enhance quality of life for military family members.  Some of the usual barriers to participating in a support group, such as lack of local services, access difficulties, childcare, and long distances to travel, are eliminated by the use of the telephone.

This program is voluntary and all information will be kept confidential!
