Military Family Wellness Program

Overview

Our service members and their families are under some of the greatest stress a person can experience especially in an on-going scenario. Having a family to support you is one of our best coping mechanisms during difficult times and day-to-day but military families don't have this especially when a service member is deployed.

Every military branch has an extensive system of support but there is always room for improvement. Service members and their families need a tool they can use at home and when deployed around the globe. A little "real" connection several times a week can make all the difference in everyone's life and can be especially helpful to the children when their parent returns home.

Goals

  • Provide a support tool for service members, their spouses, children and extended family.
  • Provide a simple and effective means to improve family communication and connection.
  • Provide a military wellness program that is cost-effective and quantifiable.

Benefits

  1. Simple, fun and effective for the service member and their family.
  2. Helps the children and parents connect in a meaningful way.
  3. Easy to use with no training required.
  4. May improve other aspects of military life including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and returning to home life after deployment.
  5. A cost effective solution that can be implemented on a large scale.
  6. Can be quantitatively monitored for effectiveness and ROI including sub-group reporting.

Implementation

FamilyeJournal is a fully automated, internet-based utility. Getting up and running is as easy as:

  1. Setup - Request a Partner Code with Sub-Groups. Sub-Groups could be divided by branch, squad, platoon, etc.
  2. Announce - Inform your service members there is a FREE, online program the military is sponsoring which they can use anywhere in the world to stay connected with their family.
  3. Initiate - Encourage registration by service members (i.e. the Family Leader) and begin daily use.
  4. Evaluate - Review quantitative monthly reports that are itemized by sub-group. Then, compare with current data, trends and outcomes.
