Spring Forest Qigong has pursued this goal since 1995 with two main paths: Teaching people how to heal themselves, and teaching people how to heal others.

We are the parents whose children have died. We are the siblings whose brothers and sisters no longer walk with us through life. We are the grandparents who have buried grandchildren.

There is no single cause to suicide. It most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition.

JED is a nonprofit that protects emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. We’re partnering with high schools and colleges to strengthen their mental health, substance misuse, and suicide prevention programs and systems. We’re equipping teens and young adults with the skills and knowledge to help themselves and each other. We’re encouraging community awareness, understanding and action for young adult mental health.

The mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.

Children's Grief Connection serves families who are devastated by the death of a loved one. Families who struggle with feelings of fear, regret, and disconnection. Their isolation is broken by joining with other traumatized families who are experiencing the same heartache. Together in the safe and compassionate setting of Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps, families make deep connections that provide support and understanding. Isolation is replaced with connection.

The Mourning's Light: Life after Child Loss is a memoir of a woman who was born into a grieving family. Her journey of understanding how grief impacted her family began after she experienced an epiphany - the epiphany that her brother's soul was reborn through her birth. This is the story of her parents and many others who experienced the death of a child, where the roller-coaster of emotions ranging from anger to guilt to depression never fully goes away. The author shares the wisdom gained from these families and how the overriding theme of faith is a key in moving forward in having a fulfilling life after the death of a loved one.
