About This Webinar:

Military couples face unique challenges associated with military life — and because strength and resilience are pillars of the military mindset, it can be difficult for them to seek help and counseling. The Office of Military Community and Family Policy launched the “Re the We” campaign to help break down barriers, destigmatize help seeking and inspire more people to get relationship support.  Join this webinar to learn about this interactive campaign initiative designed to provide tools and resources to help rekindle, repair and reset relationships.

After completing this webinar, participants should be able to do the following:

    • Identify evidence-based skill-building tools and confidential counseling and consultations offered by Military OneSource and the Military and Family Life Counseling Program.
    • Normalize and encourage relationship help-seeking for military couples through Re the We campaign content.
    • Refer service members and military couples to relationship support and non-medical counseling services
