2. FEATURED RESOURCE: MILITARY KIDS CONNECT

Military kids face unique challenges such as frequent family moves and separations from parents due to deployments. Sometimes military kids may also be living with family members who are themselves dealing with challenges such as post-traumatic stress or physical disabilities. These kinds of stressors can affect the health and well-being of military kids. The National Center for Telehealth & Technology created Military Kids Connect (MKC), which is an online community for military children (ages 6-17 years old). MKC provides access to age-appropriate resources that support children who are dealing with the unique psychological challenges of military life.
