Happening Soon:

Peer support for U.S. Military and Veterans on Fort Hood Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 A.M. until 11:00 A.M!

No one wades a stream without getting wet and no one comes back from war unchanged. For most, this is a toughening process. It is a self-awareness generation engine. The efforts of our troops may produce internal struggles, but those efforts also produce tested, accomplished people.

Sometimes, people need a hand in slowing the internal disquiet and conflict that combat, deployment, military sexual trauma, or other abnormal situations produce. No one is better prepared to speak with a Veteran about her experiences than another Veteran, a peer.

With the peer-to-peer network, veterans go through a training course that teaches them how to facilitate groups of veterans. Once trained, they are tasked with going out into their local communities and creating peer groups. Because members of the group set the rules, no two peer groups are the same. 

This peer support group is for all MALE, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Veterans.  

Receive support, resources, referrals, and understanding for PTS, TBI, MST, Trauma ... or just come to share!
