My wife added me to her Grief Coach subscription, when our close friends lost their baby. I'd never lost someone close to me before so wasn't sure how to help. The Grief Coach messages have been invaluable in helping me understand what our friends are experiencing, and suggesting ways that I could help them in a way they needed, but didn't know how to ask for.

My friend's daughter just died unexpectedly. Even though I work in traumatic grief and death, this is one time I needed guidance. The Grief Coach text messaging program is exactly what I needed, and has helped me to support my friend. This is a game changer for helping us to help others as they grieve.

My adult step-kids lost their Mom to suicide last year. I thought of them every day, but wasn't reaching out enough. Now I receive weekly suggestions about how best to connect with them.

It has always been very clear to me that the friends and family of someone who is bereaved desperately want to help. The difficulty comes when they don't know how. They are likely to be scared of getting things wrong and making them worse, and so do nothing. I asked many people who were bereaved what the single most important factor in the rebuilding of their lives was, and every single one of them said, "My partner ... my parent ... my friend ... my sibling..." It may be one close relationship, or it may be many friends and family playing different roles, but the path to rebuilding your trust in life has to be paved with people who care about you.
