Military Behavioral Health Services

Providing behavioral health services targeting the unique needs of children and families of service men and women -- Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve, and Veteran.

About Our Programs:

At Kennedy Krieger Institute, we know that children and adolescents in military families have unique stressors. Our trained staff of behavioral psychologists includes practitioners with military backgrounds or training in military issues, who understand the stresses these families face. We offer multiple locations that are convenient to both Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Meade.

The Eagle Project: The Center for Family and Traumatic Stress developed the Eagle Project specifically to target the behavioral health needs of military communities. Techniques used at the Center for Family and Traumatic Stress have been shown to work effectively with families facing these types of challenges.
