SUPPORT GROUPS IN YOUR AREA

TAPS Care Groups are informal gatherings of surviving military families, and loved ones co-hosted by a TAPS Peer Mentor and a mental health professional. These groups are not therapy groups, but they are therapeutic. They meet at a safe, easy-to-find location with available parking.

All those who are grieving the death of a loved one in service to America, without regard to circumstances, relationship to deceased, branch of military service, or geography of death, are welcome to attend. There is no charge to participants, and the meetings are set at a regular time and date that best accommodates those desiring to attend.
