Military Resources: Veteran And Family Support

Military Crisis Line
“If you’re a Service member in crisis or know a Service member who is, confidential support is only a phone call, click, or text away—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Military Crisis Line, online chat, and text-messaging service are free to all Service members, including members of the National Guard and Reserve, and Veterans, even if you are not registered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or enrolled in VA health care. Hundreds of men and women in the military call us every day, and start to get back on track.”

National Military Family Association Main Page
Founded in 1969, the National Military Family Association is the leading non-profit organization focusing on issues important to military families. We believe that all military families deserve comprehensive child care, accessible health care, spouse employment options, great schools, caring communities, a secure retirement, and support for widows and widowers.

The American Military Partner Association
The American Military Partner Association is the nation’s premier network for the partners and spouses of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender servicemembers. While federal law and Department of Defense policies and regulations continue to prevent gay military partners and spouses from taking advantage of many of the benefits and services offered to their straight counterparts, since 2009 the American Military Partner Association has stepped up to fill that void for these “silent heroes.”

Military Caregivers: Cornerstones of Support for Our Nation’s Wounded, Ill, and Injured Veterans by Terri Tanielian, Rajeev Ramchand, Michael P. Fisher, Carra S. Sims, Racine S. Harris, Margaret C. Harrell. Military caregivers are an essential part of our nation’s ability to care for returning wounded warriors. Far too often, their own needs are neglected…Government services available to this population are in their infancy; community service organizations offer diverse services but they are generally uncoordinated. This paper lays the groundwork to inform policy and program development relative to the unique needs of military caregivers.
