More than11,000 professionals have benefited from Grief Solutions

 

Like you, they are military personnel, mental health professionals, and support providers who encounter grief in those they assist.

Military Personnel

As a military member in post 9/11 America, you understand all too well that military service is a dangerous profession—in time of war and times of peace. When a line-of-duty death occurs, your duties may place you in contact with the family of a newly deceased service member.

You’re not a trained therapist; you’re a service member called to perform the toughest duty of your career.

You are the:

  • Commissioned or non-commissioned leader
  • Casualty assistance team member
  • Chaplain
  • Training Link

Mental Health Professionals

You provide care and assistance to people in need. You come across losses of all kinds in the young and old alike, and you know firsthand that losses differ in predictability and impact. Each burdens its survivors with challenges.

Your work in this area can be an emotionally charged experience for the grieving men and women you assist, as well as for yourself.

You are the:

  • Mental health professional
  • Nurse, doctor, or staff member
  • Clergy or lay minister
  • Hospice worker
  • Training Link

Support Providers

You are a service-connected outreach provider, volunteer, relative, or close friend.  You may have a strong connection to the service member or his or her family. You try to set aside your personal feelings about the loss and focus on the family.

You want to say and do all the right things, but you don’t know how to help. You sometimes feel helpless and frustrated.

You are the:

  • Outreach provider
  • Relative or close friend
