Military Family Mental Health Blog Carnival [Call for Blog Submissions] #MilfamMH

May is Mental Health Month, and we hope that you’ll join us in raising awareness by raising your voice! The MSW@USC continues its commitment to military personnel, families and communities by hosting the Military Family Mental Health Blog Carnival so you can share your stories.

  • Are you an active military member at home, away from home or returning home?




  • Are you a military spouse with a deployed active duty service member?




  • Are you a family member or friend of an active duty service member or veteran?




  • Are you a veteran with a story to share?




If this sounds like you, we invite you to join us for the #MilfamMH campaign!
