Forums on Grief and Loss

Hello Grief offers a free online grief and bereavement community. for grieving teenagers, grieving young adults, and grieving parents.  Think Facebook, with forums on grief, for those with a loss, or those who help grieving children, teenagers, and families.

The online grieving community for grieving teenagers, grieving adults, and widows or widowers can be found here: http://say.hellogrief.org.

In the online grieving community, community members create profiles, share photos, connect via stories, create memorial walls, join and create groups, and seek support in the forums. 

The forums for grief and loss are the centerpiece for conversation about life with grief within the online community.  Within the different forums, community members may share their story and discuss other issues that have come with the death of their loved one.  Forums within the community include General Chat, Support Hub, Parent Central, and Teens Talk.  Community members use the forums to talk about the death of their parent, sibling, or friend as well as to give advice and support each other.  

The community also serves as a grief social network, where community members post photos, create friendships with other teenagers or adults who are grieving a loss of a loved one, comment on each other’s walls, communicate with other members via email, and learn first hand that they are not alone in their grief and bereavement.

But, the Hello Grief online community and social network also know that grief and loss do not define who we are. So, while it is a place to connect with others living with loss, groups and forum conversations are also formed around non-loss and non-grief related topics, such as hobbies, sports, volunteering, being a parent, being a teen, school, work, etc.
