One of the main concerns during deployment is that Families are not sure what to expect. We want to make sure that you are prepared and have helpful tools to get you through the deployment successfully. On this page you will find several training modules on topics ranging from knowing what to expect after deployment to what works best for suicide prevention.
We encourage you to complete these modules with the hope that after completion, you will be empowered with information and better able to cope with any situation that might arise.
It is vitally important that you plan NOW for emergencies. Natural disasters will continue to occur. Violence, unfortunately, will continue to occur.
So what do you do?

OPSEC is important because we live in a world increasingly dependent on information. In this world, pieces of information (internet postings, work schedules, phone directories and more) may be assembled in order to form the “big picture” of an organization or operation. Family members need to be aware they need to be careful about what they post on the internet or say in the community.
Resilience training offers strength-based, positive psychology tools to aid Soldiers, Leaders, and Families in their ability to grow and thrive in the face of challenges and bounce back from adversity. Check out the Family tab for modules in preparing for and managing the realities of the deployment and the transition back home. https://www.armyresilience.army.mil/
