A Companion for your Journey
Your world has just shattered; you are looking for someone who understands, someone who will listen. If this sounds a little or a lot like how you're feeling, a TAPS peer mentor can be that compassionate presence for you!
A TAPS peer mentor is a caring individual who is also a survivor and who is further along the journey. A source of companionship, understanding, and hope. A person who has experienced a similar loss and has been trained in how to companion someone else who is grieving. A one-on-one connection that can be in-person, over the phone, email - whatever is most comfortable for you.
Peer mentors are survivors who volunteer their time to reach out and support others. They are not mental health professionals and have no formal clinical training. Your TAPS peer mentor shares an experience of loss and will devote their time, attention, and their heart to you - survivor to survivor. They will walk beside you for as long as you need.
