Local Survivor Support
TAPS Care Groups are local survivor support groups, available across the country, and provide emotional support and camaraderie for military adult survivors. Many find they learn new coping skills and stress-relieving strategies by talking to others who can relate.
While each meeting is co-hosted by a volunteer TAPS Peer Mentor and/or a volunteer mental health professional, there is no guided, structured therapy. Instead, we offer the most therapeutic thing we can imagine — time to talk, opportunities to listen, and the precious feeling of knowing we are not alone.
If you are grieving the death of a loved one in service to America, you will be warmly welcomed — regardless of the circumstances of the death, your relationship to the deceased, military service branch, or where the death occurred.
Co-hosted by a volunteer TAPS Peer Mentor and/or a volunteer mental health professional in a location near you, this is a time for non-structured time to talk, opportunities to listen, and the precious feeling of knowing we are not alone.
If you are a mental health professional and/or a TAPS Peer Mentor and would like to volunteer to facilitate and/or start a TAPS Care Group in your area, complete this interest form. See also how to become a TAPS Peer Mentor.
When you request a community resource report, you’ll receive information specific to your circumstances about grief support resources in your community such as bereavement groups, parenting support and more.
