Hello Marine Family Members!

This is a challenging time for people in our country, with the stress of the Coronavirus pandemic and the demonstrations in cities across our great land. The situation has a direct impact on our mental health.

This is an appropriate time to talk about mental health and stress. June is PTSD Awareness Month. It's an excellent time to learn more and understand what Post Traumatic Stress is and how it can impact you. 

This newsletter will give you a couple of resources and some issues to consider. At the bottom, you'll see links to resources at MarineParents.com to support you and your Marine through every career stage in the Marine Corps.

Thank you for continuing to receive and read our newsletter throughout your Marine's career in the Corps and beyond. We're glad you've found a place to connect and share®!
