Missouri’s brave Service Members, Veterans and their families face unique challenges: physical and mental trauma from deployments, separation from families, death, physical injuries and the invisible wounds of war to name a few. Their families struggle as well. Spouses, friends, parents, grandparents, siblings and children with a parent in the military may suffer from anxiety due to fears that their loved one will be hurt or injured during deployment. The Missouri Department of Mental Health is committed to serving those who serve and their families.
