This is a monthly, peer-to-peer group meeting for veterans and first responders, and is led by staff members from Stay The Course in a open-forum setting.  Meetings go every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at our Dallas location, and every 2nd and 4th Tuesday in Fort Worth at 6pm.

Virtual Peer Groups

These virtual Zoom meetings held regularly throughout the month, and each one is catered towards specific groups of people in the veteran and first responder community.  You can see exact dates for each meeting on our Events Calendar.
