The Family Center at Temple University Serving Military Families and Children
“When soldiers deploy, their family deploys” The impact of soldier deployment on their families represents a potential public health crisis. In the absence of military base support, many families may experience a myriad of difficult adjustments with concomitant emotional distress. Children especially may be the silent sufferers of the stress of military deployment and display a varied response to parent deployment. Children of deployed parents are 15-19% more likely to seek mental health care than the general population.
The Family Center provides support, referrals, counseling and psychoeducational services to military families; play therapy for children ages 2-12; individual therapy for adolescents; and parental guidance and support services for spouses.
Services are for anyone who is or was attached to any branch of the U.S. Military. Includes: active duty, veterans, retirees, spouses, significant others, children, and adolescents. Discharge status is not relevant to services.
Hours of Operation Monday 3pm-9pm Wednesday 3pm-9pm Friday 3pm-9pm By appointment and referral only
