HELPING PARENTS HEAL ONLINE GROUP

The purpose of this online group is to provide support for bereaved families whose children have transitioned. We understand the transition of a child is a traumatic experience. All affiliate leaders and online leaders of HPH have gone through this experience. In addition to this group we encourage you to take advantage of local HPH meetings in your geographic area.  This group will hold regular video conferences that you can attend from your computer, smartphone or tablet. The videos are also recorded if you cannot attend but would like to view at another time.  The dates and times will be announced in this group.  You must request to join and answer the screening questions to be approved by an administrator of the online group.

Find a Fitness/Wellness Center! Group classes and personal training helped us immensely to get our grief moving! Exercise brought us a sense of purpose and focus that required nothing more than putting one foot in front of the other.  It helped fight depression better than antidepressants, relieved anxiety, pain, insomnia, fatigue and brain fog. It helped us to regain motivation while instilling a sense of calm. Pick an activity that appeals to you, walking/hiking in nature, swimming, yoga, running, dancing or biking.  Even if you feel you can't drag youself out of bed, try  to get up and get moving!
