What’s Your Grief: Supporting Shattered Worlds

Coming in May 2022!

Litsa and Eleanor developed a website about grief.  As mental health professionals who have experienced significant loss themselves, they know individual grief is unique and that there is no “right” way to cope.  Their goal is to create a community that provides hope, support, and education to anyone wishing to understand the complicated experience after loss.
