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.

2012 National Suicide Survivor Seminar  

Gaining Strength on the Journey
By Andy Weiss, Surviving father of 1LT Daniel Weiss

TAPS Magazine | My family attended the 19th Annual TAPS National Military Survivor Seminar last May. It was an inspiring weekend with our fellow travelers in loss. I marvel at how far this river has swept me downstream from where I first fell in, drowning in my grief. How far I’ve gone and how changed I am!

TAPS Blog | Today on the TAPS Blog, surviving mother Bobbie McHenry speaks about the compassionate support she and her family have received from TAPS since her son Christopher died. She shares about a special mission her two surviving sons organized to honor their brother and help raise awareness and funds for TAPS. She writes, "I'm so proud of my boys for doing this. I truly love the idea of paying it forward to this wonderful organization. Planning this event is also helping us cope with the loss of our son and their brother."
