Staying Strong Series

Staying Strong is an initiative to build the well-being of military-connected children through parent guidance and school engagement. Paula Rauch, MD, MGH child psychiatrist, offers practical advice on deployment cycle challenges using the lens of a child’s developmental stage and temperament. Recognizing educators play a critical role during times of family stress, Staying Strong presents an evidence-based model of collaboration with your children’s school to further foster resilience during those challenges. Staying Strong was made possible through the generous support of the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation.
