Resilient Family

At Home Base, we believe that when one Family member serves, the entire Family serves. Recognizing deployment and reintegration affect Families across three generations, our clinical care is available to spouses and partners, dependent children, parents, siblings, and close friends of those who have served, even when that Veteran or Service Member is not in treatment him or herself.

Home Base has launched Resilient Family, a series of free courses designed to reduce the impact of stress on Military Families through a variety of mind-body techniques, as well as skill-building exercises scientifically shown to improve medical symptoms, mood, and well-being. The program was developed by Home Base in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine (BHI).

Participants can expect to:
