Military Spouses: Find Support From a Peer

Are you a new spouse? Do you have a few years or decades of military marriage under your belt? Whether you've been married a few months, a few years or see a retirement date in your service member’s near future, Military OneSource’s peer-to-peer specialty consultations are for you. Peer consultants are veterans and military spouses who can:

  • Answer questions about military culture and life
  • Provide installation and community-based resources and make three-way calls with you on the line
  • Offer supportive listening and coaching

Why request a session with a peer consultant?

Everyone can use an extra helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. Peer consultants provide that support from the perspective of someone who has walked a similar path as a military spouse. Here are a few reasons you might consider a peer-to-peer specialty consultation:

  • You’re a new spouse who could use some help understanding all the military acronyms and lingo, or navigating the waters of military life.
  • You recently moved to a new duty station and could use a sympathetic ear until you find your new group of friends.
  • Your spouse is deployed; you want someone to talk to about your concerns, how to address questions from family members or what the best tools are for a smooth reunion.
  • Your service member is about to retire or separate; you have questions about the transition and the best ways to support your spouse.
  • You need a little help with communication and sustaining a healthy military marriage.
  • You need information on military services, benefits, programs and supportive resources.

Peer consultants can also connect you with Military OneSource services such as financial counseling, spouse education and employment, non-medical counseling and more.

There is no limit to the number of sessions you can have with your peer consultant or the issues you can address with them.
