We live in a modern age where technology can bring people together and build virtual networks of support.
What’s Your Grief – To put it simply, this website is about grief. That probably sounds oversimplified, but grief is a complex, heavy, frustrating, scary, enormous…ahem, big topic. It starts with a death and envelopes everyone from family to friends, to friends of family and friends. Not only is grief an emotional, logistical, and existential nightmare, but it is taxing. It requires us to navigate the world without someone important, deal with complex feelings and emotions, and figure out ways to move forward when everything seems kind bleak.
The site’s founders are two Baltimore-based mental health professionals with 20+ years of experience in grief and bereavement. More importantly, though, they have both experienced the death of a parent and have dealt with life after that loss. They did not know what resources were available and fumbled through the darkness alone. Later they wondered why should anyone have to feel alone when so many of us have been through grief ourselves? For this reason, What’s Your Grief was created to provide a place where people can come to support and be supported.
GriefShare – GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences, You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare seminars and support groups are lead by people who understand what you are going through and want to help.
