Your Family's Health

You may fear for your parents safety while they are deployed. Unfortunately, sometimes the unthinkable happens — an injury or death of your parent. The most common types of injuries include post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, or some type of physical injury. These situations are uncharted territory for you and your family. You might have these questions:

  • What is going to happen to me and my family?
  • What is post traumatic stress disorder? A traumatic brain injury?
  • Will my parent get better? How should I act around my parent?
  • Is there something I am doing that is making their symptoms worse?
  • Why do I feel angry or impatient all the time?
