Mind Kind: A Word From Our Social Media Spouses Squad

We reached out to military spouses for a word about mental health

This week we are focussing on the mental health of the armed forces community and to help us do that we asked our #SMSpouses Squad to shine a light on the military partners who face mental health challenges.

To do this they helped us create the simple video montage above featuring them all saying “yes” to the following question:

“Ever felt like you’re on your own? Ever struggled to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Mind Kind is a week-long series of interviews, videos, case studies, practical tips and information on mental health and forces families across BFBS platforms.

The week will culminate in an interactive panel session on BFBS Radio Facebook on Friday, July 3 at 1pm (UK).

We hope that our Mind KindBFBS Radio Facebook live on Friday, July 3 at 1pm (UK time) will encourage more military families to share their thoughts and experiences of mental health in the context of service life, and ask questions to our panel of experts.
