Understanding the mental health of military youth and their families is important to The Barry Robinson Center (BRC). That’s why BRC is supporting the release event for the Blue Star Families 2021 Military Family Lifestyle Survey on March 16 and 17, 2022.
Rob McCartney, CEO, will be moderating an hour-long deep dive session related to the panel topic, Back to Basics: Military Family Health and Mental Health at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 17. This is the second year he has been part of this special event.
McCartney said BRC appreciates the opportunity to enhance the important work and knowledge that comes from the military and Veteran connected families that answered the Blue Start Families annual survey.
The Military Family Experience 2022: Back to Basics provides an in-depth look into the top issues facing families today, including:
- Amount of time away from family due to military service
- Relocation/PCS issues, impacted by COVID-19 related challenges
- Military spouse under- and unemployment
- Understanding of military/Veteran issues by civilians
The 12th annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey, taken from April to June 2021, captured experiences of more than 8,000 respondents worldwide, remaining the largest and most comprehensive reporting of active-duty, National Guard, Reserve service members, Veterans, and their families.
Registration for the worldwide virtual event where Blue Star Families researchers, military leaders, and others discuss the meanings and implications of the findings.
