ECS Psychological Services is proud to honor our military spouses on
National Military Spouse Appreciation Day!
* May 10, 2019*
Military Spouse Appreciation Day is a day for pause to recognize the military spouses around us who impact the lives of our military communities every day. Military Spouse Appreciation Day is recognized annually the Friday preceding Mother’s Day. The special day was first recognized by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 and continues today with celebrations on and near U.S. military bases around the world. ECS Psychological Services would like to honor two of our very own military spouses, ECS founder, Erin Christopher-Sisk, Ph.D, and Dana Jacobs, LMHC, CASC! It is truly humbling to be a part of their work.
At ECS Psychological Services, we offer year-round support to our service members, their spouses, and their families. Mrs. Jacobs is passionate about the development of a weekly military spouse support group to encourage community and connection with others. Each week the group members can share experiences which can provide a greater sense of connection and understanding within.
Being a part of a military family offers unique opportunities and challenges. This group provides spouses a safe space to address the ups and downs of military life which include; marital stress, isolation, PCSing, anxiety, and other difficulties military spouses face, often alone.
Circumstances such as deployments and reintegration as well as relocations and reassignments are also sensitive factors. Access to skilled professionals proficient in recognizing and treating these issues can be a challenge.
Clinicians at ECS Psychological Services hope to be a part in changing that and are proud to provide necessary mental health care for service members and their families. For more information on our services, please call us at (518) 580-0520.
