Ohana Heroes Project Research Study

Dear Real Warriors members,

I am a University of Hawaii at Manoa researcher in the Psychology Department. I am posting this in the hope that the Real Warriors program, given the close match to our study, would help disseminate information about our study, the Ohana Heroes Project (ohanaheroes.com) to interested families.

Although the conflict in the Middle East is drawing to a close, military families still continue to experience the stress and challenges of having a loved one deployed for extended periods of time. The University of Hawaii has been selected for a grant funded by the U.S. Department of Defense to examine the impact of military deployment with the end goal of determining the types of resources and programs that would be most helpful for military families. The study will examine psychosocial, family and academic functioning in children and teens. All families with at least one child between the ages of 7 and 17 on the Big Island or on Oahu are eligible to participate in this important study. Active duty military families from any service branch are invited to participate. Civilian families with two parents living in the home or families going through a recent separation or divorce are also invited to participate. Compensation will be provided for families’ time and effort. For more information about the study, please visit ohanaheroes.com and call/email to schedule a screening eligibility call.

For any further questions, of if you'd like to get in touch with our Project Coordinator, please email Dr. Amelia Kotte:
