Deployment's effect on children's mental health

Cyndee Taresh pets Siena, an Appaloosa, at Tyson's Corners Retreat and Wellness Center in Lampasas on Sunday, June 23. Taresh volunteers at the center after taking her children for therapy with Siena and other horses to help them deal with their father's deployment. A new study shows that children of parents who deploy are more likely than their peers to have depression, excessive worry and trouble sleeping.
