add to outlook calendar add to gmail calendar October 9, 2023

This group meets the 2nd Monday of the month at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Whether you are the surviving parents, step-parents, or grandparents grieving the suicide loss of a military loved one, you belong.

We request you sign up at least 24 hours before you attend your first session so that we can ensure the integrity of the group and answer any questions you may have. Sign up is required only once!

Military Survivors

In this online group, we'll make sure that you are surrounded with people who will help you tell your own story and give you the gift of listening to theirs. Join with other parents of suicide loss for open and supportive discussions as you cope with the death of your son or daughter in military service. You can expect gently guided discussion in groups and in smaller breakout sessions. Share stories of your loved one or simply listen and find healing from others.

What to Expect

Online groups are peer-led, facilitated sessions where there’s never pressure to share, but always an opportunity. Whether you attend once or regularly, you will always be welcomed. We value the importance of knowing that there are “places” we can show up and feel supported and inspired, and you can decide to connect with us every week or whenever it’s convenient or compelling.  

Please remember that, while we anticipate that these groups will become engaging, encouraging community gathering “places,” you never have to wait if you need to talk. We’re always here for you, 24 hours, 7 days a week, year-round, at 800-959-TAPS (8277).
