A big part of the grieving process is learning to embrace your individual experience, because no two experiences of grief will be exactly alike…being open about your own experience may also help someone else feel less alone in theirs.

When grief shakes one’s world, coping, healing, and recovery aren’t always instinctual. To help guide the many possible experiences of grieving, Supportiv, the on-demand peer-to-peer mental health service, releases a new collection of grief articles and resources.

Supportiv CEO & Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk speaks to the escalating societal need for grief resources: “With over one million COVID deaths in the US to date, an estimated nine million people are currently grieving a loved one for that reason alone. However, deaths are just one of the many types of grief-worthy events one might face. For example, each year, hundreds of thousands get divorced, receive difficult medical diagnoses, and see the ends of friendships.”

“What happens when others don’t understand what you are mourning? So many grief-worthy events still feel marginalized from discussions about grieving: becoming estranged from family members, experiencing ethnic or racial inequity, or mourning the past that shaped your current struggles–just to name a few,” shares Supportiv Co-Founder Pouria Mojabi. “A big part of the grieving process is learning to embrace your individual experience, because no two experiences of grief will be exactly alike. That said, being open about your own experience may also help someone else feel less alone in theirs.”

Supportiv’s new grief articles and resources (https://www.supportiv.com/grief) deliver considerations and guidance to get through the grieving process–no matter what set the process in motion.
