Survivors Helping Survivors Heal

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

The TAPS Peer Mentor Program means you’ll never walk alone.

This is a journey we are committed to sharing with you, alongside you, for as long as you need. Whether you’re further along in your grief journey and ready to help others or recently bereaved and reaching for hope, the power of survivors helping other survivors has proven successful. 

The TAPS Peer Mentor Program equips survivors 18 months past their loss to serve as a mentor to fellow survivors looking for support from someone who truly understands. Our peer mentors innately and intimately understand the unique aspects of military tragedy. Peer mentors are there to listen when you need someone to talk to, be a friend when you’re feeling lonely and celebrate the triumphs in your grief journey.

If you want to be connected with a peer mentor, visit our Request a Peer Mentor page. If you’re a survivor 18 months beyond your loss, consider becoming a peer mentor. If you are not a survivor but would like to support our nation's surviving military families, please visit our Volunteer Central page.
