The Associated Centers for Therapy, which is a non-profit mental health center, is offering free support sessions to Oklahomans dealing with a deployment. ACT also has a large network of community services to help families who may suffer from a loss of salary or child care.
"Some have gone through this before and they give comfort or strength in what to expect and some parents talk to their children regularly and it just helps talking to other parents," said Denise Gary.
The next support meetings will be held on January 12th and 26th at the Nathan Hale Public Library, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. You can call 918-492-2554 for more information.
