Each of the groups will provide a safe and supportive environment for participants to express their feelings and better understand the grief process as they deal with the death of a friend or family member.
SUPPORTING FAMILY AFTER A CHILD DIES
The mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.
Spark of Life exists to equip the hurting for living forward with confidence and hope after loss. We offer safe spaces for conversations about the hard things we all experience after loss whether it’s the loss of a loved one, loss of our health, loss of our expectations. We want to provide the encouragement and hope you need to live forward with purpose.

QPR Institute Mission
To save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
What does QPR mean?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour.
If you are considering suicide or have a family member considering
ending their life, please call 1-800- SUICIDE (784-2433) today.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary situation.

On WYG’s second birthday we told you that, among other things, our mission for the next two years is to ensure there’s support for all types of grievers. We know the ways in which grievers learn and the things they find helpful differ across the board and with a world of technology available it no longer makes sense to limit grief support to talk therapy and the written word. https://whatsyourgrief.com/grief-podcast/
