Individual grief counseling is a one-to-one resource that is important to many in their grief journey.  The opportunity to sit with a skilled therapist who understands grief and trauma can help the survivor gain the necessary skills to integrate the loss into their lives. This can empower survivors to find strengths within themselves that they may not have realized were there.  TAPS makes every effort to connect survivors to no-cost services.  We partner with the Veteran's Administration, which maintains more than 250 counseling centers known as Vet Centers.  For those that do not qualify for grief counseling through the VA, or for whom the VA is not the best fit, we utilize organizations such as Give an Hour, Psychology Today, Open to Hope, and TAPS volunteers licensed in mental health treatment to ensure the counseling needs of survivors are met.

TAPS Magazine | After months of preparation, phone calls and staff meetings, staff and volunteers flew in from every corner of the country for the final push to make ready for the 22nd Annual National Good Grief Camp. In one day, we were operational and ready to welcome the almost 1000 children, mentors and volunteers showing up for the Good Grief Camp in Arlington, Virginia.
