The issue includes articles on addressing the social-emotional-behavioral needs of military-connected children and youth, APA President Don Bersoff’s presidential initiative on the health care of service members and their families, understanding ways psychology can improve the overall well-being of military families and school-based behavioral health services for military youth, among others.
