Information and Programs for Military Families

As our service men and women continue to carry out missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, their families, friends and significant others continue to experience varying amounts of worry and fear.
In the face of this anxiety, you or someone you know may be experiencing some of the following signs of the emotional impact of stress:

  • Difficulty completing tasks
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fear and anxiety about the future
  • Apathy and emotional numbing
  • Extreme hunger or lack of appetite
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Crying for “no apparent reason”

When facing stress, some people will maintain their routines to achieve a sense of control and to distract themselves, and other will have difficulty focusing for some time. Both reactions are common responses to this situation.
