Hungry veterans need help. Here’s how communities can provide it.

Nearly one in four U.S. veterans faces hunger. A recent study by Purdue University’s Military Family Research Institute at 10 faith-based food pantries in Indiana and Kentucky – five pantries in each state – suggests there is promise for underserved veterans and their families.

Participants sought: Conversations about post-deployment adjustment

University of South Florida researchers are seeking eligible military spouses or significant others to participate in a study that seeks to understand the experiences of partners who have (or have had) concerns about their service member’s post-deployment adjustment.

Additional trainings created for SBHP providers

A nationally-recognized initiative created by the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University (MFRI) and others has expanded training opportunities for civilian behavioral health providers. Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) now offers sustainment training for providers who have completed SBHP Tier Two training.
