TAPS Peer Mentoring Templated to Help Military and Veteran Caregivers

Author: TAPS

As part of the Joining Forces initiative and its ongoing efforts to engage all sectors of society to give our service members and their families opportunities and support, First Lady Michelle Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden hosted former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, former Senator Elizabeth Dole, caregivers of veterans and active duty service members and TAPS representatives at the White House to discuss ways to improve support and resources available for caregivers.

The TAPS peer mentoring model will be templated and utilized to create a new network to help military and veteran caregivers.  "Connecting people who have suffered and now live daily with trauma with others who share a common experience provides healing and support," said Bonnie Carroll, TAPS founder.
