WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Webhealing.com has been serving grieving people on the web since early 1995. It offered the internet's first online support forum for the bereaved and also started the internet's first memorial page.
Though we serve all bereaved peoples, we specialize in the following; healing from trauma, physical and psychological differences in boys and men and how these impact healing, and active modes of healing.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Sadly, the grief dynamic for individuals is usually one of isolation and silence. This silence isn’t surprising. It’s just so, so difficult to talk about death and the pain of grief. It doesn't help that any talk of death and expressions of grief in our society are still considered ‘taboo.’
Most adults don’t feel comfortable talking with another adult about their own grief after a loss, let alone trying to help someone else open up about their grief journey. Our site, however, gives those who are grieving permission to talk about their memories, thoughts and feelings.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We help educate the public on the issues of healing from loss and to help create a safe place for grieving people to facilitate their healing. We do this by providing the following:
- Read- On our blog we have an abundance of articles that cover the many aspects of grief including excerpts from Tom's writing. Articles will be added as we work on moving the site to the new format.
- Watch- Numerous videos are available examining many aspects of grief and healing. Topics include the basics of grief, suicide, men and their differences and much more.
- Honor- The Honor Page was the internet's first memorial page started in 1995. It no longer accepts new entries but now has hundreds of people telling the story of their grief and loss.
- Support- We offered the first internet interactive forums for the bereaved in 1995. Those forums are still functioning and include Death of a Child, Spouse, Sibling, Parent, Suicide and more.
