Educational Course Focuses on Tools to Manage Stress and Worry

During this period of uncertainty, military families are faced with unique stressors causing enormous strain, including interrupted PCS plans, activations and deployments, shifting childcare and child education plans, personal finances and employment insecurity. These challenges can intensify stress and worry, making them more difficult to manage.

“We know that stress and worry are very real issues for military families both in the United States and abroad. This dynamic online course will give those in need the techniques to deal with these problems at their own pace and whenever they need the help,” said Dr. Anthony Hassan, President & CEO of Cohen Veterans Network. “We are thankful to Blue Star Families for contributing to the development of the content and reaching military families across the globe who may lack accessible mental health resources.”

In partnership with Blue Star Families, CVN’s Clinical Training team designed the course to support the unique needs of military families around the globe. The course uses a research-based approach made up of brief modules designed to fit into small windows of time. More information about the course is available here. CVN will partner with BSF and several other military-family focused non-profit organizations to disseminate the educational course to those who may be in need.
