WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Though What's Your Grief is a place where anyone who is grieving can come to support and be supported, we started the blog as a result of being unable to find any websites that specifically supported young adults in their 20s-30s who were grieving. Today, we work with families from many different walks of life which has taught us that while there are commonalities, grief is also a very personal and individual individual experience. Our website is relatable, no matter how old (or young) you are.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
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 a world without someone important, deal with complex feelings and emotions, and figure out ways to move forward when everything seems kind of bleak.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We provide resources and support for people grieving the loss of a loved one with a focus on grief exploration, education and expression. We do so in both practical and creative ways as well as provide the public with…
