Registration Opens for DoD’s Inaugural Virtual Relationship Wellness Summit
Department of Defense
The Department of Defense will host an inaugural Relationship Wellness Summit from November 16-17, 2021. This multi-day virtual event is designed to encourage members of the military community to strengthen existing relationships and build skills for new and parent-child relationships.
The summit will provide resources for attendees to strengthen their relationships with themselves while strengthening connections and building interpersonal skills for relationships with others. Participants can also share their own experiences and stories.
The event is open to all members of the military community – whether single, dating, married or parents. Subject areas will be:
- Reviving romantic and intimate relationships
- Explore tools and resources to strengthen parent-child relationships
- Finding support and building skills for individual service members
“Everyone has relationship challenges, and military life can be especially tough for established couples and single military members seeking connections,” said Lee Kelley, director of military community support programs at the assistant secretary of defense for the military community and family policy. “By attending this summit, service members and spouses can take the first step towards achieving relationship health, which is a critical factor in daily life, work, readiness and resilience.”
Participants can register for the summit here.
The inspiration for the summit was the success of Military OneSource’s “Re the We” campaign. The DoD created the Relationship Campaign to help military couples rekindle, retool, and mend their relationships – or in a healthy way to reset their relationships when a relationship ends. Re the We connects members of the military community with expert help and a wealth of resources through Military OneSource and the Military and Family Life Counseling Program.
