Below are two of the best local and national grief resources we have come across in the industry. There is something for everyone if you explore. COPE is locally based and has local bereavement events to attend where as Whats Your Grief deals with grief in both creative and practical ways for anyone experiencing any kind of grief. They both have extensive off and online resources on their sites and we encourage you to sign up for their newsletters and explore their sites and blogs and even classes. Check back here regularly for updates.
