“I hope we can all join together to better understand the mystery of suicide and offer support to those left behind.” – Kim Ruocco, TAPS Spouse
In the aftermath of a death by suicide, there may be confusion and questions circling in your mind. What if? Why? What could I have done? These are questions often asked by people who experience the death of a loved one, but they take on expanded meaning to people facing grief when their loved ones have died by suicide. You are not alone. TAPS is here to walk alongside you and offer comfort and help. Suicide survivors are welcome at all TAPS events for families of our fallen. There is a special suicide loss chat each month and we hold an annual gathering for suicide survivors in the fall.

September was National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Organizations across the country focused their efforts in partnership with TAPS to raise awareness about suicide and prevention. We provided education on both risk and protective factors and offered connections to crisis and community resources as we spread a message of hope, help and healing.
