April is the month of the Military child


Wyoming Behavioral Institute, a 114-bed licensed behavioral health facility that has served this community and state for more than 25 years, observes April as the Month of the Military Child. Children of military service members from all branches must deal with their parent’s deployments and separations, frequent moves and even the trauma their parents may experience as part of military service. 

On average, military families move every two to three years and military children change schools an average of six to nine times from kindergarten through graduation. This year, an estimated 30% will move to a new installation.

There are more than 1.6 million military children who face these challenges. We acknowledge the impact of military life and are here for the children who may need professional help to improve emotional stability. We specialize in treating children who are struggling with behavioral issues and use a trauma-informed approach.

“As our way of visually showing our support, we encourage our community to wear purple to recognize military kids on Wednesday, April 17, 2024. Our team of dedicated, compassionate clinicians focus their energies and talents on working with military children. We have seen many successes,” said Mike Phillips, CEO.

We provide no-cost assessments 24/7 and can help military children find the treatment that can help them cope. Call us today at 800-457-9312 or learn more at wbihelp.com
