The world of PTSD can make us feel so alone and overwhelmed! We all need peer support!
Due to many requests and a growing demand for ongoing peer support groups for loved ones of veterans and loved ones of those who struggle with PTSD, LOVE OUR VETS – PTSD Family Support Network, LLC is continually compiling a data base with all known peer support groups available nationwide, and is also open to helping anyone start a group where there is none. Peer support groups are an essential lifeline!
If you know of any additional ongoing regularly meeting peer support groups for families, friends, spouses, S/O’s and all loved ones of veterans, whether through the VA, or vet centers, other organizations, or private, please Email Us the name of the contact person, their e-mail and/or phone, website , city, and state. Or message us on Facebook .
And if you have no VA or other support group near you and want to consider starting one, we can help you with that too. Send us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Facebook message. All you need is a heart and willingness to reach out.
RICH AND KAREN STRAIT (both veterans with experience leading support groups, and also battling PTSD and thriving in spite of it) MAY BE AVAILABLE TO COME HELP YOU GET A FAITH-BASED GROUP STARTED (no cost)…PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TALK WITH THEM ABOUT THAT. (Thank you Rich and Karen!) 231-288-4222. Hope4Vets-Families@comcast.net
Please help us spread the word so we can help many who are desperate for in-person ongoing peer support and connection. Thank you so much for supporting our vets and all their loved ones!
To offer hope, encouragement, practical help, support and connection for all loved ones and caregivers of those who serve or have served in the military, especially if they have PTSD, as well as loved ones of all who struggle with PTSD.
